Dr. Ge Yang

NE Faculty Proposal Selected to Utilize the PULSTAR Reactor

Dr. Ge Yang’s proposal, Positron annihilation lifetime spectroscopy investigation of vacancy-related defects in room-temperature radiation detector material CdZnTe, has been selected for award using instruments located in the Nuclear Reactor Program / PULSTAR Reactor at the department of Nuclear Engineering in North Carolina State University.

The award is provided by the Nuclear Science User Facilities, under the rapid turnaround experiments, which mission is to provide nuclear energy researchers access (at no cost to the researcher) to world-class capabilities to facilitate the advancement of nuclear science and technology. The mission is supported by providing access to state-of-the-art experimental irradiation testing, post irradiation examination facilities, and high performance computing capabilities as well as technical and scientific assistance for the design and execution of projects.
