Industrial Steering Committee

Report to DIAMOND Industrial Steering Committee, University of Leeds, 24th February 2011:

Projects are now maturing - some entering final year

Most of projects in WP2 making good progress, although some will extend beyond nominal end date

Raised some technical highlights:

Technology for Decommissioning: Analysis of Key Radionuclides in Decommissioning, David Douglas / Barry Sharp, Loughborough

Novel laser ablation technique and ICP mass spec

Working with NERC Isotope Geosciences Laboratory

Increased sensitivity and detection limits for radionuclides

New Wave Research have proposed a KTP

Characterisation, Retrieval and Treatment of Waste: In Situ Waste Characterisation, Tim Hunter / Jeff Peakall and Simon Biggs, Leeds

Ultrasonic velocity profiling demonstrated

Acoustic backscatter system demonstrated to measure concentrations

Erosion of cohesionless sediments may be predictable

NNL interested in use of UVP and ABS on in-house simulants

Contacts made with SME concerning use of techniques

slide7

Industrial Steering Committee

Positive comments from industry regarding impact

Journal publications ~20 in the past year

Conferences and international workshop participation

Work proposed at NNL active facilities

Secondments:

J. O’Neill (Imperial) – ACTINET grant for 3 month secondment to ITU, Karlsruhe

J. O’Neill (Imperial) – Beamtine at ANKA beamline

N. Cassingham (Sheffield) – 4 month secondment to PNNL

M. Stennett, N. Hyatt (Sheffield) – Beamline Development Proposal for hard XAS / XRD beamline at NSLS-II approved Oct 2010. Beamline Execution Plan in progress, first operation in 2016

slide8

Cross-Cutting Theme Workshop

  • Proposed CCT 2 Workshop on Radiation Damage
  • Organisers – Neil Hyatt & Charlie Scales
  • Radiation damage has emerged as a CCT in many DIAMOND projects
  • Aims: Support development of radiation damage physics and chemistry for PhDs & PDRAs
  • Support knowledge transfer between projects – methods, models, data analysis, etc
  • Take overview of progress in DIAMOND, identify future plans and collaboration
  • Propose 2.5 day workshop:
  • 1.5 day tutorial sessions on underpinning science by international speaker
  • 0.5 day poster session for knowledge transfer between projects
  • 0.5 day discussion to identify research progress, impact and future plans
  • Proposal for part funding submitted to NDA by NNL
slide9

DIAMOND - What Next?

Outputs increasing annually

Papers and conferences

Placements

Intellectual property

Research projects - input from industry on-going

Industry keen to engage in all aspects of consortium

Annual conference

Work package meetings

Provision of specialist facilities

Spin-out activities, e.g. KTN

Keep momentum going - what next?

Format of next consortium will be different

Industry focused

Steering committee members to investigate in-kind and financial assistance prior to talks with EPSRC; contribute ideas on their vision for continuance of consortium; workshop to scope bid to EPSRC

slide11

Closing Remarks

Next annual conference:

Coventry - Museum of Transport

14th-15th December 2011

Format similar to previous

To be advertised shortly
