ISOTOPES -- Banner year . . .

Californium-252 and actinium-225 generated half of the $5 million in sales for the Department of Energy's National Isotope Data Center at ORNL in fiscal year 2008. That amount represents a $1 million increase from 2007. Californium-252 -- used as a start-up source in nuclear reactors, in analyzers for the coal and concrete industries and in detectors for homeland security -- produced $2 million in sales. Actinium-225, an isotope extracted as a product of the decay of thorium-229 and used in radiotherapy trials for various cancers, including ovarian, lung and myeloid leukemia, accounted for more than $500,000. The Californium-252 is produced at ORNL's High Flux Isotope Reactor in conjunction with the lab's Radiochemical Engineering Development Center. ORNL offers a wide range of capabilities in isotope production and irradiation tests for materials research. Beyond these contributions, HFIR, supported by the Office of Science, is a world leader in producing neutrons for materials studies.

SENSORS -- On the prowl . . .

Mathematics and sensors come together in some new ways to form a powerful tool for combating terrorism, piracy and the transport of drugs. In a project that combines resources at ORNL and Clemson University, researchers and students are using something called Level 3 sensor fusion to identify and predict the behavior of ships, tanks, people and more. "This means we not only know where they are, but we can make educated guesses about what they're going to do and when," said Chris Griffin of ORNL's Computational Sciences & Engineering Division. The system, called LEPERD Learning and Prediction for Enhanced Readiness and Decision Making involves a lot of new math and uses techniques from pattern recogn
