  • Identification of Pd-Si Compounds in Diffusion Couple Studies to Complement AGR PIE reports 

    Stone, Jordan; Cavazos, Steven; Montoya, Katherine; Kirtley, Thomas; George, Gisele; Sooby, Elizabeth, S. (7/28/2022)
    Palladium (Pd) and silver (Ag) are known fission products of TRISO particle nuclear fuels [1]. Pd is known to corrode the silicon carbide (SiC) layer of a TRISO particle, which can compromise the overall fuel performance ...
  • Understanding of Additive Manufacturing with the Combination of the Flexible Manufacturing Process 

    Perkins, Briley; Ewuzie, Emmanuel; Aristizabal, Mauricio; Balcer, Matt; Millwater, Henry (7/28/2022)
    Additive Manufacturing is 3D printing which requires a set of repeating steps throughout the process. STL, or Standard Triangle Language, is the most important step in the printing process that allows the model to be ...
  • Additive Manufacturing & G Code 

    Ewuzie, Emmanuel; Perkins, Briley; Aristizabal, Mauricio; Balcer, Matthew; Millwater, Harry (7/28/2022)
    Additive Manufacturing (AM) is the process of building physical objects by layering materials. It is controlled by G code and a myriad of other codes. CAD models are sliced and converted into a layer by layer code (G Code). ...
  • Strategic Freezing 

    Seligman, Zachary; Patrick, David; Fernandez, Amanda (7/28/2022)
    Convolutional neural networks (CNNs) are notoriously data-intensive, requiring significantly large datasets for training accurately in an appropriate runtime. Recent approaches aiming to reduce this requirement focus ...
  • Identifying Gamma Radiation Anomaly Signals Using Quantum Computation Methods 

    Foate, Joshua; Valdez, Luis; Alamaniotis, Miltos (7/28/2022)
    Collected data using a radiation detector to identify anomalies in the presence of naturally occurring radioactive material. Samples of the anomaly signals were put into a Hopfield neural network to train the network ...
  • Semantic Segmentation for Materials Classification of Nuclear Fuels 

    Mohanadhas, Daniel; Snyder, Chris; Fernandez, Amanda (7/28/2022)
    Semantic segmentation, the task of classifying objects in an image at a pixel level, has been done since 2012. While our method is not new, our application is. Unlike most tasks which are on clearly-defined objects, the ...
  • Probe Beam Deflection Technique as a Characterization Method for Nuclear Materials 

    Carle, Lydia; Escudero, Jose; Flowers, Jacob; Nash, Kelly (7/28/2022)
    Probe beam deflection technique (PBDT) was evaluated as a potential method of characterization for both radioactive and non radioactive materials. This method was chosen for its non destructive nature. The analyte of ...
