June 21: Lunch for students and supervisors/managers

A few snapshots taken at the lunch for students and supervisors/managers immediately following the the "Fast Reactor Physics & Nuclear Fuel Cycle" Seminar (June 21, 2011).

The seminar series aims to provide students with technical information in areas not usually covered by university courses. In the case of reactor physics, most university coursework covers only the physics of thermal reactors. This first seminar of the series addressed how fast reactor physics differs from thermal reactor physics, and how the fast spectrum allows pursuit of various strategic objectives, e.g., resource extension, actinide burnup in lieu of disposal, and weapons material disposition. The students came away from the seminar with a clear understanding of what is unique about the physics of fast reactors.

The seminar was followed by an NE division sandwich lunch social, giving the summer students, as well as professionals serving summer appointments in NE, an opportunity to meet members of the NE staff in an informal setting. Delicious sandwiches and energizing conversation between students and staff were enjoyed by all.
