Speaker: Phil Torretto, LLNL
Phil Torretto has been working in radiochemistry and radiation detection since obtaining his B.S. in Nuclear and Radiochemistry at San Jose State University in 1993. From 1992-1994 Phil broadened his experience in the field as a student intern at Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory in the actinide geochemistry group. Hired as staff scientist at LLNL in 1995, Phil has spent the last 21 years focused on radiochemistry and radiation detection. Beginning as a bench radioanalytical chemist in 1995 and culminating in the last 4 years as the Nuclear Counting Facility manager, Phil has recently become the group leader for LLNL’s ES&H bioassay and radiological measurements laboratories.
Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory Nuclear Counting Laboratory
Abstract: The Nuclear Counting Facility at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory has been a unique asset and capability for over 40 years. Initially built in the late '60s and early '70s to support radiochemistry diagnostics for the Nuclear Test program, its mission now includes support for programs such as Environmental Radiochemistry, Stockpile Stewardship, Pre- and Post-detonation Nuclear Forensics, Rad/Nuc Emergency Response, and Nuclear Diagnostics for High Energy Physics. The facilitiy's core capability lies with its 13 high-purity germanium gamma-ray spectrometers and, through an amalgamation of commercial hardware and in-house developed software, provides a variety of LLNL programs with the “life-blood” data they require to fulfill their national security mission.
