UNLV has developed the Transmutation Research Program projects with the primary focus of supporting student research into transmutation and supporting technologies. Twelve independent student research tasks were initiated in the first year of the program. These research projects span the range of technology areas for transmutation, from the chemical separation of uranium from spent nuclear fuel, to the optimization of super-conducting components for proton accelerators, to the corrosion of materials exposed to lead-bismuth eutectic.
