  2. Advanced Plastic Scintillators for Nuclear Non-Proliferation Monitoring

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: 03c

    The proliferation of weapons of mass destruction (WMD) is a serious threat. Preventing the spread of these nuclear weapons has reached a state of heightened urgency in recent years. Neutron detection is an important component of the overall detection techniques used in identifying WMDs. At present, there is need for an efficient detection system that would allow neutron detection wit ...

  6. Solid-State Neutron Detector for Nuclear Material Accounting

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: 21c

    Nuclear material accounting within the nuclear fuel cycle includes preventing and detecting theft or diversion of special nuclear material. Neutron detection by use of pressurized He-3 tubes is a critical component within the scheme of safeguarding nuclear materials. Due to the worldwide shortage and high demand of 3He supply, alternative neutron detection technologies are required to ...

  10. A broad-spectrum reactive nanocomposite gel coating to sequester chemical warfare agents

    SBC: Nano Terra, Inc.            Topic: CBD13101

    Chemical warfare agents, such as nerve and mustard agents, pose serious threats to our soldiers and civilians. An efficient barrier coating which can sequester and deactivate chemical agents is urgently needed. We propose a broad spectrum responsive nanocomposite gel coating that can irreversibly sequester and deactivate a variety of chemical agents. Our base material is a fast curing gel modified ...
