The Biophysical and Polymer Radiation Laboratory, directed by Professor Mohamad Al-Sheikhly, is located in the Chemical and Nuclear Engineering Building and is utilized in conjunction with the University of Maryland Radiation Facilities. The laboratory, that has two distinct experimental facilities devoted to polymer modification research and radiation biophysics, has pursued the chemistry and materials of the radiation processing industry since 1960. In addition of being an eminent scientist, one of the important activities of Prof. Al-Sheikhly is to support companies and government laboratories with radiation-related research and consulting services in areas such as: Applied radiation and physics of polymers, Radiation sources technology and Fundamental aspects of radiation bearing on applied problems. Being so, this visit will have two important goals: * to improve among us technological innovation and * to go forward specifically on the discussion and interaction on the development of nanoscale materials and structures using ionizing radiation. This interaction has already started sending one of my doctorate students, Patricia Y. Inamura, to work for a six-months period at Prof. Al-Sheikhly's laboratory in 2012. (AU)
