Enabling the powder metallurgy process to expand to new markets

There is no reliable method able to inspect parts and detect local defects in green state powder metallurgy parts. The lack of an adequate inspection system has implications from the point of view of production, since it ...

Probing Fukushima with cosmic rays should speed cleanup

A Los Alamos technique called muon tomography can safely peer inside the cores of the Fukushima Daiichi reactors and create high-resolution images of the damaged nuclear material inside without ever breaching the cores themselves. ...
