|Kansas State University||Infrastructure||Reactor Upgrades||$1,495,945|
Kansas State University will remove its aging reactor control console at
the facility and replace it with a Thermo Fisher Scientific TR-1000
series console which will add additional safety features, an automatic
flux control system, improved human interface design, and additional
data outputs for teaching and research, while improving the reliability
of the reactor facility.
|University of Florida||Infrastructure||Reactor Upgrades||$683,127|
University of Florida will create an Integrated Nuclear Fuel and
Structural Materials (INFS) research center, which will expand the
installed infrastructure of the University of Florida Training Reactor
and improve the reactor facility capabilities and utilization.
|University of Missouri, Columbia||Infrastructure||Reactor Upgrades||$213,632|
University of Missouri will acquire and upgrade three systems essential
to MURR’s operations: electron beam welding services for fabricating
replacement control blades; the facility’s physical and cyber security
access control system; and reactor instrumentation.
|University of Wisconsin, Madison||Infrastructure||Reactor Upgrades||$22,060|
University of Wisconsin will upgrade personnel radiation monitoring
equipment and calibration standards to support the operation and
research being conducted at the UWNR and its associated Characterization
Laboratory for Irradiated Materials (CLIM).
|Aiken Technical College||Infrastructure||General Scientific Infrastructure||$245,000|
Aiken Technical College will acquire an advanced Flow Loop Trainer
needed to maximize the value of its nuclear-related training programs.
|Clemson University||Infrastructure||General Scientific Infrastructure||$325,000|
Clemson University will acquire a High Temperature Melt Solution
Calorimeter to support existing DOE-NE programs as well as advanced
characterization of ceramics in related nuclear and commercial arenas.
|Georgia Institute of Technology||Infrastructure||General Scientific Infrastructure||$228,000|
Georgia Institute of Technology will enhance its academic and research
capabilities in nuclear engineering x-ray imaging and neutron dosimetry
in the following ways: Installation of an imaging system to go along
with the existing x-ray source in a fully equipped irradiation
laboratory; Addition of spectroscopic instruments to perform energy
resolution measurements in supplement of imaging, and;
Addition/expansion of dosimetry capabilities by adding tissue equivalent
proportional counters (TEPC) to the neutron spectral and dosimetric
instruments for improved characterization of the neutron and mixed
|Utah State University||Infrastructure||General Scientific Infrastructure||$226,824|
Utah State University will purchase key equipment to strengthen core
capabilities in high temperature materials characterization including a
multi-camera system consisting of infrared (IR), ultraviolet (UV), and
visible-range cameras will be used to collect simultaneous full-field
temperature and strain measurements from the surface of
thermo-mechanically loaded nuclear materials.
|Washington State University||Infrastructure||General Scientific Infrastructure||$32,925|
Washington State University will purchase an automated flash
chromatography system to improve our current ligand purification
abilities. An automated system requires little human involvement,
dramatically shortens purification time thus increasing the user’s
productivity, and is more conservative of resources like solvents and
