How to Use Nuclear and Particle Physics to Solve Real Life Problems

Ivan Novikov, Purdue University, West Lafayette, IN
Building 6008 Conference Room

I show how methods of nuclear and particle physics can be used to detect, identify and locate various hidden substances. I will focus on neutron interrogation systems developed at Purdue for elemental analysis of special materials in sealed containers.
