Melissa Dawkins (right), a chemist at the Ciambrone Radiochemistry Laboratory, Patrick AFB, Fla., explains to newly-assigned chemists 2nd Lts. Kaleb Mitchell (left) and Jessica Lewer (center) how samples that undergo radiochemical separations are inspected.  Scientists from CRL, which is headquartered at the Air Force Technical Applications Center, use analytical chemistry methods to determine if trace levels of radioactive debris are present in environmental samples as part of AFTAC’s nuclear treaty monitoring mission.

Claudia Granger, a mass spectrometry operator at the Ciambrone Radiochemistry Lab at Patrick AFB, Fla., loads a filament wheel into a thermal ionization spectrometer, which is used to analyze trace amounts of uranium or plutonium extracted from environmental samples.  Granger is one of 60 CRL scientists headquartered at the Air Force Technical Applications Center who executes the Nuclear Debris Collection and Analysis program.  (U.S. Air Force photo by Susan A.

Airman 1st Class  Mitchell Kirkpatrick, a measurements technician at the Ciambrone Radiochemistry Laboratory, Patrick AFB, Fla., carefully places a sample onto a gamma ray detector to check for radioactive debris from an environmental sample.  The detector is made up of a 4-inch thick outer shell with a copper lining, which shields the sample and limits natural radioactivity and x-rays emitted from outside sources to prevent interference with low-level analysis.
