Short Lab announces new method to analyze and measure radiation damage

Mike Short, Assistant Professor of Nuclear Science and Engineering, and his student Cody A. Dennett, along with several other scientists, will research the development of new materials for future nuclear reactors.

"Now, researchers at MIT and Sandia National Laboratories have developed, tested, and made available a new system that can monitor radiation-induced changes continuously, providing more useful data much faster than traditional methods."
