Dr. Thomas Massey, Research Associate Professor, and the staff at the Edwards Accelerator Laboratory welcomed back physicists James Hall and Darren Bleuel of the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in California in September, 2014.
The scientists visited Ohio University for a week to test and measure several possible candidates for producing high energy and intensity neutrons. The researchers seek to develop neutron technology to detect defects in ceramics, plastics, and other low-density materials shielded by several inches of dense metal.
Hall mentioned that he has visited Edwards Accelerator Lab on a regular basis for almost 20 years to do experiments. All proof-of-principal neutron imaging experiments have been conducted at Edwards Accelerator Lab during this time.
