Radioactive Material Handling Laboratory

The Radioactive Material Handling Laboratory enables the development and production of low-level radioactive sources and targets.

Targets can be produced by wet chemical methods, molecular deposition, mechanical rolling and pressing. The laboratory is equipped with a split glovebox for handling actinides, a HEPA-filtered hood for working with metal powders, and several chemical fume hoods for working on various processing/production methods.
