Unlimited Energy Meets an Unlimited Resource:
Michael J. Driscoll and Nuclear Engineering at MIT
The Department of Nuclear Science and Engineering (NSE) and the Center for Advanced Nuclear Energy Systems (CANES) are sponsoring a symposium on advances in nuclear energy in honor of Professor Michael J. Driscoll, who is celebrating his 80th birthday in September 2014.
Professor Driscoll has been a member of the NSE Department for half a century, since he started as a graduate student in 1963. His research — in fields covering thermal and fast reactor engineering, fuel management, and fuel cycle analysis — provided a strong foundation for the department’s efforts in these areas over the years. Among his most recent efforts are re-assessment of the supercritical CO2 power cycle for high temperature reactors, a model for prediction of U production costs given its terrestrial sources, and the potential for deep bore applications in nuclear waste disposal.
These and other topics are covered in a two-day symposium, to be held at MIT on April 28 and 29, 2014. The event, which is open to the public, requires prior registration.
