He also had a lot of questions about safety. Luckily, with all that radiation, there are very strict safety procedures in place. One year working at NCNR is less radioactive exposure than being on a flight from New York to Los Angeles, and about 5 x-rays. We also learned about the barn, which is the unit for the chance neutrons will hit an atom.
|On the tours|
After the first tour, we went back to the classroom to grow crystals. The most difficult part was tying a string around the seed crystal. After making an over-saturated solution in warm water, the containers were set aside, and the crystals would grow for the rest of the week. Hopefully, they will turn out.
