MSc. Chemistry Student Hannah Oreskovic won 1st place at the 47th annual Canadian Nuclear Society/Canadian Nuclear Association (CNS/CNA) conference. The poster explained the relatively novel elemental analysis technique, using negative muons (elementary particles that mimick heavy electrons or light protons) to achieve non-destructive, sub-surface analysis of samples. It also detailed planned applications of this technique to study deep geological repositories (DGRs), which are underground networks of used nuclear fuel containers. Future study will help determine the longevity and degradation rate of the containers.
