In the Author's Words

One of the leading designs for the next generation of nuclear fission reactors is a sodium-moderated fast reactor. Before such reactors can come online, it is necessary to understand how neutrons, which are prevalent in the reactor environment, interact with Na, especially in what is the fast neutron energy region between about 1 and 20 MeV. The cross sections, or reaction probabilities of neutrons with Na, investigated in this research are important not only for the design of the next-generation reactors, but they also help us better understand the nuclear force across a wide energy range.

UD Engages Conservation, Behavioral Research Efforts with Dallas Zoo

A few years back, the University of Dallas began to form a relationship with the Dallas Zoo, when Assistant Professor of Biology Deanna Soper, Ph.D., and her colleague, Professor of Psychology Scott Churchill, P.h.D., began taking class trips to the zoo. And in the spirit of further collaboration, the world's leading cheetah expert and conservationist, Laurie Marker, Ph.D., founder and executive director of the Cheetah Conservation Fund (CCF) sponsored by the Dallas Zoo, will join the UD community on Thursday, Oct. 25, to give a lecture about her work rescuing the world's fastest land mammal from extinction.
