At the Department of Energy’s Savannah River Site installation of bubbler technology and related enhancements in the Defense Waste Processing Facility (DWPF). The improvements will accelerate processing of radioactive waste into a safe, stable form for storage permitting expedited closure of underground waste tanks holding 37 million gallons of liquid nuclear waste.
The National Ignition Facility (NIF) is the world’s largest laser. NIF’s 192 intense laser beams can deliver to a target more than 60 times the energy of any previous laser system. NIF’s designers made major advances in existing laser technology as well as to develop entirely new technologies. Innovations in the design, manufacture, and assembly of NIF’s optics were especially critical.
T-REX produces gamma rays (high-energy photons) with the brightness needed to study isotopes. The capabilities of T-REX will enable researchers to address challenges in homeland and international security, nonproliferation and waste identification.
