  Emerging Technologies in Nuclear Science & Engineering - Development of novel techniques/tools using particle transport theory methodologies  
(Seminar/Conference)

Alireza Haghighat, Professor, Director of NSEL & VT3G
Nuclear Engineering Program, Mechanical Engineering Department
Virginia Tech Research Center


Prof. Haghighat will introduce the Nuclear Science and Engineering Lab (NSEL), and discuss NSEL's efforts in addressing critical problems in power, safeguards and non-proliferation, medicine, and policy. Specifically, he will discuss the emerging technologies being developed in power, security and safeguards, and medicine with the use of particle transport methodologies. He will briefly introduce the audience to the main approaches used for solving particle transport problems, and examine their strengths and weaknesses.

Prof. Haghighat will introduce the Small Modular Reactors (SMRs), and briefly discuss his group's involvement in this area. Prof. Haghighat will elaborate on the development of advanced hybrid particle transport methodologies for safeguards of spent fuel pools and active interrogation of cargo containers. Further, he will discuss novel techniques being developed for eventual use for image reconstruction in the Single Photon Emission Computed Tomography (SPECT).

Through above discussions, Prof. Haghighat will demonstrate that the use of various techniques and methodologies (e.g., Sn transport methods, adjoint transport theory, Monte Carlo methods, specially the fission matrix method, and the response function approaches) in the same problem can result in hybrid tools that yield accurate results in real time. These tools will contribute to effective use of nuclear science and engineering in solving major problems facing the mankind.
