Untangling the signatures of smuggled nuclear materials from the radiation background created by shooting neutrons at suspected cargo is the task of U-M research team.
Nuclear nonproliferation: $1.9M to improve detection of weapons-grade material
Augmented reality for testing nuclear components
A new machine learning platform detects and quantifies radiation-induced defects instantaneously and could be extended to interpret other microscopy data.
Strong magnetic fields change how friction works in plasma
Rather than just slowing down a charged particle moving through a plasma, friction can also push from the side in a strong magnetic field.
