NRG student Joseph Hashem will present a paper titled "Automating X-Ray and Neutron Non-Destructive Testing Applications" at the ANS Winter Meeting in Washington DC which documents the feasibility to use industrial manipulators in a neutron field terms of validating the precision and vibrations of a canidate manipulator. Additionally the proposed test system has been evaluated using MCNP software.  The paper is co-authored with James Hunter  at LANL and Mitch Pryor at U.T. Austin.
