US-Taiwan Nuclear Partnership
The United States and Taiwan have a rich history of over 50 years of cooperative projects in nuclear energy. A new emphasis, through the Idaho National Laboratory (INL) and the Taiwan Atomic Energy Council (AEC), is to develop collaboration in the field of nuclear materials characterization. This effort, lead by Dr. Steven Bakhtiar of the INL and Dr. Wei-Wu Chao of the AEC proposes to share facilities and resources of both organizations to improve the science and technology of nuclear materials analysis. The first collaborative meeting on these topics is scheduled for May 15 and 16, 2012 at the INL.
