Description: This video presents the nuclear engineer Jon Carmack talking about his nuclear fuels research at the Idaho National Laboratory, and how it may lead to solutions for nuclear waste. The Hot Fuel Examination Facility (HFEF) is one of the largest hot cells dedicated to radioactive materials research at INL. HFEF hosts the Neutron Radiography Reactor (NRAD), a reactor built for neutron radiography irradiation of small test components. HFEF is the only large, inert atmosphere hot cell that is suitable for examination of chemically reactive materials.
