Physics to Hold Joint Meeting with American Nuclear Society April 17 at IIT

The American Nuclear Society Chicago Local Section and the IIT Department of Physics will hold a joint meeting on Wednesday, April 17, at 6:30 pm in LS 111. Jeff Terry, associate professor of physics, will present the lecture, “Synchrotron Radiation Studies of Advanced Nuclear Energy Materials.”

Terry’s talk will focus on the application of synchrotron techniques to measure the electronic structure and the nano- and meso-scale geometric structure of materials of interest to the nuclear community. The methods that have been used to handle radioactive materials safely at synchrotron radiation facilities will also be discussed.

Due to limited seating of 95, please RSVP for the meeting to
