Nuclear Engineering Faculty Special Web-Based Lecture


The NAMP cordially invites you to attend web-based lectures on specific radiochemistry topics developed in cooperation with the EPA and other Federal agencies, and our university partners.  Short (1- to 2-hour) webinars on specific radiochemistry topics are presented by renowned university professors and leading scientists in radiochemistry.

The Nuclear Forensics Series examines the existing technical capabilities and describes how these tools are essential to prevent and respond to acts involving nuclear and other radioactive materials out of regulatory control. As the threat from malicious acts involving nuclear and other radioactive materials persists, nuclear forensics depends upon innovative science and methodologies to identify the origin and history of these materials as part of an investigation of a nuclear security event. The webinar topics in this series incorporate the expertise of companion disciplines such as geochemistry, materials science, nuclear engineering and environmental science, which can provide accurate measurements and analysis important for identifying nuclear forensics signatures.

Please plan to join us for Nuclear Materials Analysis — Non-Destructive Analysis

Who Should Attend
: Laboratory Technicians, Chemists, Nuclear Engineers, Regulators, Managers & Students

Lecture Overview:   This webinar describes nondestructive assay instruments and techniques, including gamma ray spectroscopy, neutron detection, coincidence or multiplicity counting, calorimetry, densitometry, and x-ray fluorescence, discusses the advantages and disadvantages of each, and provides an understanding of their use in the identification and measurement of nuclear materials.

Meet the Presenter…
Dr. Azaree Lintereur


Dr. Lintereur is an Assistant Professor for the Nuclear Engineering Program at the University of Utah, which she joined in August 2014. Prior to joining the university, Dr. Lintereur was a postdoctoral research associate at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) in the Radiation Detection and Nuclear Sciences group.  Her work at PNNL emphasized radiation detector development for nuclear safeguards and homeland security applications.  She specialized in 3He alternatives for neutron detection, with a focus on coincidence and multiplicity counter design.  While at PNNL she was supported by the Next Generation Safeguards Initiative and completed the summer Intensive International Safeguards course.  In her current position, she is developing a radiation detection laboratory and research group.  Her group, which consists of both graduate and undergraduate students, is working on a variety of detection projects ranging from muon detection to dual modality calorimetry-gamma ray spectroscopy system development.  These projects are supported by DOE and national laboratories.  She also continues to consult on multiplicity counter development for PNNL.  In addition to research, Dr. Lintereur teaches for the Nuclear Engineering Program.  She updated the graduate reactor physics course, developed a graduate nuclear instrumentation course, and co-taught the new graduate course in nuclear safeguards and nonproliferation.  She has also formed an Institute of Nuclear Materials Management (INMM) student chapter, for which she serves as the faculty advisor.
