Radiolysis & Radiation Effects

Quantify the role of β and γ radiation in driving molecular speciation and interfacial reactivity far from equilibrium.

  • How does the radiation environment impact the structure of nanoscale aqueous films at (oxy)hydroxide interfaces in the presence of radiation, and how does the structure influence overall interfacial reactivity?
  • What is the molecular-level impact of energy deposition from radiation and interfacial dynamics for metal (oxy)hydroxides as a function of particle size in highly alkaline environments over long-time domains?
