New Technique ‘Sees’ Radioactive Material Even After It’s Gone
A new technique allows researchers to characterize nuclear material that was in a location even after the nuclear material has been removed.
Saving America’s Nuclear Industry
NC State is helping the nuclear energy industry remain a significant part of America's long-term energy portfolio.
NC State leads the Consortium for Nonproliferation Enabling Capabilities, a national effort to stop the illegal proliferation of nuclear weapons.
Hero of Three Mile Island Dies
Harold Denton, the cool-headed federal regulator who took charge of Three Mile Island after the nation’s worst nuclear accident, was a 1958 graduate of NC State’s nuclear engineering program.
2 Elected to National Academy of Engineering
Two NC State faculty members are elected to the prestigious National Academy of Engineering for groundbreaking work in nuclear engineering and materials science and engineering.
Paper Spotlights Key Flaw in Widely Used Radioisotope Dating Technique
An oversight in a radioisotope dating technique used to date everything from meteorites to geologic samples means that scientists have likely overestimated the age of many samples.
Don’t Panic, But Your Avocado is Radioactive: Study Eyes Background Radiation of Everyday Objects
Most people assume all radioactive materials are dangerous, if not deadly. But a new study on the radiation emitted by everyday objects highlights the fact that we interact with radioactive materials every day.
NC State Engineers to Help Further Civilian Nuclear Energy in Vietnam
NC State University to help train Vietnamese engineers on civilian nuclear energy.
Research Demonstrates That Air Data Can Be Used to Reconstruct Radiological Releases
New research demonstrates that experts can use data from air sampling technology to not only detect radiological releases, but to accurately quantify the magnitude and source of the release. This has applications for nuclear plant safety, as well as national security and nuclear nonproliferation monitoring.
Nonproliferation Work Scores $25 Million
NC State will lead a consortium dedicated to reducing the spread of nuclear weapons. The $25 million federal grant fueling the effort is just the latest in a series of major research awards.
