CNL Awards of Excellence/Distinguished Merit Award: Eye lens dosimetry

Distinguished Merit Award: Eye lens dosimetry

Fawaz Ali, Jason Sun, Neil Leroux, and Victor Golovko

For the work on the eye lens dosimetry research and associated program.

The program was implemented by CNL’s Health, Safety, Security & Environment (HSSE) team as a solution based on S&T research results, making use of existing technology available at CNL, and modifying it for the development of the eye lens dosimetry program. This ingenious decision negated the need for procurement and implementation of new technology, thereby saving CNL an estimated $400,000. This work also helped to get additional research funding from the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) and CANDU Owners Group (COG).

The significance and value of this work go well beyond CNL; it is beneficial to all Canadians and the international scientific community.
