NPSI Activities Featured in Laboratory Director's Column

In his column, Dr. Ashby wrote, "From understanding basic physics to producing medical isotopes, supporting nuclear nonproliferation to advancing nuclear energy, and aiding environmental cleanup at sites like Hanford — nuclear science and engineering underpins about half of the research at the Department of Energy’s Pacific Northwest National Laboratory."

He went on to provide examples of PNNL's work — including NPSI's studies with ceria, efforts to increase access to instrumentation outside of PNNL's Radiochemical Processing Laboratory, and detection of xenon in fuel cladding. Read his column.
