Professor Novog’s Nuclear Safety Laboratories provide a suite of flexible equipment for examining single and two-phase flows in a wide range of geometries. The lab is equipped with conventional process measurement and control systems as well as state-of-the-art phase-Doppler and laser-Doppler anemometers, time-resolved Particle Image Velocimeter, and 3d Impedance 3D tomography systems. Flow loops and power supplies up to 300kW are available for testing a range of flow and heat transfer phenomena under high-pressure and high-temperature conditions relevant to the nuclear industry. Past projects have included CHF and PDO testing under fast-transient condition, investigation of bubble fragmentation phenomena, two-phase heat transfer, and 3-D moderator flow and temperature measurements for both UNENE and the CANDU Owners Group.

JHE 322, 320, ABB B145

JHE 322 includes a Newport 96000 solar simulator with AM1.5G filter calibrated to 1 Sun, a nitrogen glovebox, and a laminar flow bench for chemical processing.

ABB B145 includes a micro-photoluminescence system with various sources (HeNe laser, Ar ion laser), detectors (Si CCD, InGaAs detector, InSb detector), and low temperature (10 K) cryostat.


Prof. Rafael Kleiman

BSB B203/A, BSB B201

In BSB B201 Dr. Bradley and his students focus on the characterization of silicon-based thin films and photonic devices. Using optical probe stations, photonic chips fabricated on campus are measured here to characterize their optical properties and optimize them for applications including high-speed communications and sensors.
