Recognition by Real Time Radiography

Real Time Radiography (RTR) is one of the most important techniques of nondestructive assay used for many years at the Laboratory, and at many other places. It is an active imaging technique, applying an X-ray beam, adjustable in both power and wavelength. The RTR hardware is relatively simple, robust and inexpensive, commercially produced. It works both indoor and outdoor, in any weather and temperature conditions acceptable for its human operators. Hanna will discuss RTR image interpretation in the context of the TRU waste characterization project, where for 3 years she was responsible for reconciliation of RTR results with the waste generators data.

LunchTalk Location

Synergy Center Conference Room, 3rd floor, Bldg 1,
Los Alamos Research Park, 4200 West Jemez Road.

Use of the conference room was donated by the Synergy Center, an "economic development incubator" located in the Los Alamos Research Park with the goal of promoting development of R&D and technology business activities. Contact Monica McCoy at 661-4807 for more information on the Synergy Center.

You need a parking pass to park at the Research Park!

To get a parking permit in advance, you need to email or call Aurelia Sisneros, aurelia@losalamos.org, 663-5001, to get a numbered copy for yourself. To get a parking permit when you arrive for the LunchTalk, park in the (15 minute?) parking area just in front of the door to the Research Park building, run up to the 3rd floor where Aurelia (at the front desk in Synergy Center) or I will have permits available, then go back to your car and park it in a longer term spot, and return to the 3rd floor for the LunchTalk. Apologies for the inconvenience - the Research Park is working on improving the procedure to facilitate parking for legitimate purposes while still protecting it's parking from "LANL overflow".
