|“Basic Research, Astrophysics to National Security”
Mike Dion from Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) in the Radiation Detection and Nuclear Sciences group.
Abstract: Mike’s talk will cover a broad area of topics including polarimetry and micropattern detectors. He will discuss the use of Negative Ion gases in Time Projection Chambers and how it is advantageous to X-ray and gamma-ray polarimetry applications. He will also provide an overview of PNNL and the capabilities of the Lab followed by an overview of a couple projects he has been involved in: including coincidence conversion electron-alpha detection for actinide detection, a novel multi-point contact High Purity Germanium (HPGe) detector for passive spent fuel measurements and results from a very interesting project that combines an Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometer (ICP-MS) and radiometric detection.
