Mariya Zhuravleva (UTK) receives prestigious NSF Career Award

Posted by:

Mariya Zhuravleva, Assistant Professor in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at the University of Tennessee Knoxville and NSSC Faculty member, has received the prestigious NSF Career Award. Dr. Zhuravleva’s award provides support for five years with a focus on “opening the door to emerging functional multicomponent oxides via a novel crystal growth approach.”  Dr. Zhuravleva earned her Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Materials Science and Engineering from the Moscow State University of Fine Chemical Technology, Russia, and her Ph.D. in Materials Science and Engineering from Tohoku University, Japan. She has authored or co-authored over 40 technical papers and has contributed to over 100 technical presentations at national and international conferences. Please join me in congratulating Dr. Zhuravleva on this excellent achievement!

New Software Package to Model Delayed Gamma-Ray Spectra

Posted by:

The Fission Induced Electromagnetic Response (FIER) code enables analytical prediction of delayed-ray spectra following fission. Developed by NSSC Fellow Eric Matthews with support from NSSC Executive Director Bethany Goldblum, LBNL Scientist Brian Quiter, and NSSC undergraduate Matthew Shinner, FIER uses evaluated nuclear data and solutions to the Bateman equations to calculate the time-dependent populations of fission products and their decay daughters resulting from irradiation of a fissionable isotope. These populations are then used in the calculation of gamma-ray emission rates to obtain the corresponding delayed gamma-ray spectra.

The software is available for download here: https://github.com/efmatthews/FIER
A manuscript detailing the platform, including code verification and validation, is available here: https://doi.org/10.1016/j.nima.2018.02.072
