Mattingly on Vulnerabilities of the Nuclear Fuel Cycle
Start Date: 10/16/2013Start Time: 11:45 AM
End Date: 10/16/2013End Time: 1:30 PM

Event Description:
Some of the materials, technologies, and processes used in the fuel cycle for nuclear energy production and research are also usable for nuclear weapons development.  In fact, most countries that have obtained (or sought to obtain) nuclear weapons have developed their weapons program in parallel with their nuclear energy program, and many have used their nuclear energy program to support their weapons program.  John Mattingly will discuss what makes special nuclear material (SNM) "special" in terms of its attractiveness for use in weapons, the processes by which SNM is made and the technologies used to make it, how these processes and technologies can be used to exploit the nuclear fuel cycle to produce nuclear weapons, and the resultant "holes" in current international nuclear nonproliferation efforts.
