A poster without peer

MU Nuclear Engineering graduate student Andrea Saltos earned first-place honors in the student poster competition at the recent Institute of Nuclear Materials Management Annual Meeting in Indian Wells, Calif.

Study abroad trip offers unique look at nuclear science and technology

The French Alps Nuclear Science and Technology program is a collaboration of the College of Engineering, the MU Research Reactor [MURR], and the College of Arts & Science Physics Department. The goal of showcasing the many applications of nuclear science matched the International Atomic Energy Agency’s “Peaceful Uses Initiative.”

First water-based nuclear battery developed at MU

Think about how many devices you come across each day that are battery powered. The list is almost endless, and for that reason, researchers and scientists constantly are searching for the next big improvement, the next battery breakthrough.

Fifth Missouri Tech Expo gives ideas a space to shine

The University of Missouri hosted the 5th Annual Missouri Technology Expo on October 16, serving as a forum allowing researchers and MU startups to pitch technologies and business plans to an audience of entrepreneurs, investors and technology companies.

Radiopharmaceutical production in the face of nuclear nonproliferation

According to the World Nuclear Association, approximately 90 percent of nuclear medicine procedures conducted worldwide are diagnostic in nature and fully 30 million of them utilize the radioisotope technetium-99m (Tc-99m). More than half of these procedures occur in the United States, and for nearly a decade, there has been an international effort to ensure that […]

Mizzou Engineering gears up to ease nuclear expertise shortage

Responding to a nationwide shortage of engineers for the nuclear industry, Mizzou Engineering is launching a two-pronged program to encourage both scholarship and training in the field. “Our goal is to build a core of individuals who are both high-impact researchers and educators so that they can effectively educate future generations of nuclear engineers,” College […]

NRC preparing for new types of reactors

Nuclear Regulatory Commission Chairman Dale Klein urged students at a regional conference recently held by Mizzou Engineering to tackle the complex technological issues he predicted nuclear engineers soon will face. The nuclear renaissance now under way in the United States probably will generate plans for nuclear reactors unlike the light-water reactors that currently dominate reactor […]

Small spark gaps; big X-rays

Pulsed power technology has many potential applications and University of Missouri’s College of Engineering researchers are hotly pursuing some of them in the College’s pulsed power labs. Funded by Sandia National Laboratories in Albuquerque, N.M., a National Nuclear Security Administration Lab, an investigation by Scott Kovaleski, an assistant professor in electrical and computer engineering, involves […]
