Description: This presentation will demonstrate how thermoluminescence, optically stimulated luminescence and electron paramagnetic resonance spectrometry are being used for nuclear nonproliferation, forensics and radiological emergency response research. Also, new physical insights into radiological air monitoring (indirectly related to the WIPP event) will be demonstrated in addition to novel detection approaches. All of this folds into supporting the new Health Physics minor and Graduate Certificate now available at NC State where further exciting developments are currently underway.
