Thrusts of Research
Nuclear Data Measurements at UMass Lowell Research Reactor
New measurements at UMass Lowell Research Reactor revealed discrepancies in current data essential to many applications.
We are set to remeasure new data on gamma rays from thermal neutron capture on Mn, Cu, Ni, and Cr.
Neutron Capture and Fission Experiments at Los Alamos National Laboratory
Unique highly efficient detectors reveal hidden correlations in products of neutron reactions to advance nuclear structure knowledge.
Radiation Detectors Development
We design sensors for radiation monitoring and detection of various type of radiation.
Nuclear Data Evaluation
New evaluations of nuclear data.
Can neutrons be used in cancer therapy ?
Our new NSF funded project will target Gadolinium Neutron Capture Therapy (GdNCT). We will study radiations induced by neutrons on Gadolinium compounds and evaluate efficiency and dose enhancements of GdNCT.
Advanced Monte-Carlo Simulations of Radiation Transport
We perform advanced Monte-Carlo simulations of radiation transport in materias, detectors, shielding and human tissue. The Geant4 and MCNP6 based calculations help design new experiments, evaluate backgrounds and doses in relevant applications. These calculations also help improve fundamental models of nuclear structure and nuclear reactions.
