This week, Travis Dietz was awarded a Council of Ionizing Radiation Measurements and Standards student grant award for his work on the extraction of uranium from seawater using radiation-grafted fabrics. The award will cover Travis’s attendance at the council’s annual meeting at the National Institute of Standards and Technology the week of April 26th. Travis will be presenting a short five minute presentation of his work as well as a poster during the conference.
A more detailed article on Travis’s project and the award can be found on the department website here.

The Laboratory for Radiation and Polymer Science is led by Professor Mohamad Al-Sheikhly at the University of Maryland, College Park. Our group is dedicated to exploring the effects of radiation on materials and the study of polymers. In order to perform this research we work in close collaboration with a number of other institutions including The Catholic University of America, The National Institute of Standards and Technology, The University of Texas, Austin, among others. Please see our research and publications page for more information about our group and its current research projects.
