Abstract

Quarterly report highlighting research projects, activities and objectives of the Transmutation Research Program at the Nuclear Science & Technology Division, Harry Reid Research Center.

The University of Nevada, Las Vegas supports the AFCI through research and development of technologies for economic and environmentally sound refinement of spent nuclear fuel. The UNLV program has four components: infrastructure, international collaboration, student-based research, and management and program support. Management and program support highlights are the following: the UNLV TRP hosted the Eighth Annual IAEA Actinide and Fission Product Partitioning & Transmutation Information Exchange Meeting (Nov. 9 – 11). 120 people from 22 countries attended the meeting; and the call for proposals for new and continuing research projects with summer starts was issued.
