Improving non-destructive detection methods of special nuclear materials
Congratulations, Noah and Kelsey!
Dr. Enqvist Research Group
Welcome to the homepage for the Enqvist Research Group conducting research of the Nuclear engineering program in the department of Materials science and engineering at the University of Florida. The Enqvist Research Group conducts research on neutron detection and neutron reactions for nuclear engineering and safeguards. We focus on improving non-destructive detection methods of special nuclear materials. Neutron detection for fission, spallation, and alpha-n reactions are of particular interest, as is the physics of fission, and the interaction mechanisms between neutrons and detector materials. The research aims to improve on existing data, and implement new methods and analysis tools that can be used for safeguarding nuclear material, as well as being used in nuclear power and science. We try to find solutions for monitoring and analyzing nuclear materials. Covering the life cycle all the way from the mine to the current and future nuclear reactors as well as radiation inducing accelerators and spent nuclear fuel.
