Sally Hicks"Neutron Scattering Differential Cross Sections for 23Na from 1.5 to 4.5 MeV."

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.  READ MORE

The Rome Experience: Tracing Western Civilization

During this semester's trip to Greece, UD's Romers toured the ruins of one of history's most famous military engagements -- the Battle of Marathon -- dating back to 490 B.C. The trip marked the first visit to Marathon in decades for the Rome Program. "Our visit there was long overdue," said Peter Hatlie, vice president, dean, director, and professor of classics on the Rome campus.
