(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2001)This study demonstrates the first successful implementation of a fission converter to produce a source of epithermal neutrons suitable for BNCT. The final design, construction and characterization of a new epithermal neutron ...
Gamma ray production cross sections of proton bombardment of fluorine for light element analysis and depth profiling (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2019)Due to the interdependence of fusion reactor performance and the surface conditions of the plasma facing components (PFC), diagnostic techniques that monitor the conditions of PFCs are useful. One ion beam analysis (IBA) ...
Tritium thermal desorption testing of nuclear graphites irradiated at fluoride-salt-cooled high-temperature reactor conditions (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2018)The Fluoride-Salt-Cooled High-Temperature Reactor (FHR) is a next-generation nuclear plant design that combines successfully demonstrated technologies from other advanced reactor concepts such as tristructural isotropic ...
