Steve Zinkle

Steve Zinkle, the joint UT-Oak Ridge National Laboratory Governor’s Chair for Nuclear Materials, is a highly regarded figure in the nuclear community around the world.

That expertise was noted recently with the publication of research conducted by several people at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

Their work could lead to new, more efficient ways of measuring radiation.

Such a breakthrough would be revolutionary for the industry, with several publications running the thoughts of Zinkle, who works in the Department of Nuclear Engineering, on the matter.

Phys.orgScienceBlog, and ECN all noted Zinkle’s regard for the potential of the breakthrough and the promise of real-time monitoring that it would provide.
