AUBURN – The College of Sciences and Mathematics, or COSAM, will host the 2011 Atomic Data and Analysis Structure workshop today through Saturday at The Hotel at Auburn University and Dixon Conference Center. This year marks the first time the ADAS workshop has been held outside Europe.
The primary focus of the workshop will be using nuclear fusion to make electricity. The process produces no greenhouse gases and creates less radioactive material than nuclear fission and therefore fewer problems with storing nuclear waste. There are several large experiments underway worldwide and some of the presenters at the conference will discuss these experiments.
