Effect of self-irradiation damage on thermal diffusivity and SAW speed in a thorium-doped lead sulfide thin film (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2019)Lead sulfide (PbS) is an important semiconductor for infrared light detection, and use in space necessitates understanding how it evolves when damaged by ionizing radiation. Previous work in chemical bath deposition (CBD) ...
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2019)Convenient access to accurate nuclear data, particularly data describing low-energy neutrons, is crucial to the quality of thermal nuclear reactor simulations. Obtaining the scattering kernel for thermal neutrons (i.e. ...
Correlations in Monte Carlo eigenvalue simulations : uncertainty quantification, prediction and reduction (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2018)Monte Carlo methods have mostly been used as a benchmark tool for other transport and diffusion methods in nuclear reactor analysis. One important feature of Monte Carlo calculations is the report of the variance of the ...
