Wolf-Udo Schroeder

Areas of expertise: Schroeder's research focuses on basic and applied Nuclear Science and Technology. His group's heavy- and light-ion reaction studies explore fundamental properties of nuclear matter, as well as the dynamics of nuclear reactions and decay. Such information is relevant for understanding cosmological objects (neutron stars) and processes (supernovae, production of chemical elements). It is also relevant for the distribution of energy in nuclear fission-like decay. Applied research of the group includes development of novel nuclear radiation detectors and advanced electronics, important for both basic nuclear science and nuclear forensics. Studies of proton induced transmutation have applications in nuclear waste management. Ongoing radio-chemical work is directed to study chemical and physical interactions of tritium with metals and organic materials, as well as to develop methods for the recovery of tritium from exposed materials. Radioactive tritium is fuel for future fusion power reactors but is also produced in conventional light-water nuclear power plants.
