The RSEL’s association with the Georgia Tech NRE/MP Program, the George W. Woodruff School of Mechanical Engineering, and the Georgia Tech Office of Radiological Safety affords access to a range of low-level detection equipment, as well as to a machine shop with all labor costs 100 % subsidized by the Georgia Tech College of Engineering. Further, Georgia Tech maintains a mobile site license for use and possession of radioactive materials. This allows Georgia Tech scientists to conduct research anywhere in the State of Georgia, giving them a broader range of applicability and testing capabilities. Thus, unlike many other research projects, laboratory walls do not bind NRE/MP research. Our expertise spans both computational and experimental methods, while also providing exposure to the nuances and challenges of work with nuclear materials.
|Quantitative and Qualitative Analysis
Through the Medical Physics faculty at Georgia Tech, Emory University, and other affiliated organizations, the RSEL has access to expertise and experience in:
|Modeling and Simulation
Recognizing that the nuclear needs of the United States are not only technical, but political, the RSEL is uniquely suited to help train the next generations of nuclear engineers to understand the unique interplay of science and policy. In addition to technical staff experienced in MC&A and Safeguards, our affiliations afford access to a range of individuals in the Department of Homeland Security, Department of Defense, and the Department of Energy.
