Contaminant Migration and Nuclear Safeguards Laboratory

Contaminant Migration
 •  Measurements and modelling of processes that govern  the migration of contaminants into soil, water, and air
 •  Static and dynamic measurements (batch and column tests)
 •  Study of the distribution processes of contaminants between aqueous and solid phases
 •  Leaching measurements for the containment of fission products
 •  Development of deterministic and stochastic models of transport of contaminants in natural and artificial porous media.

Nuclear Safeguard
 •  Simulation of measurements for the detection of nuclear materials in containers by passive and active techniques (neutrons and photons)
 •  Development of Monte Carlo MCNP and MCNPX codes.
