SCHOTT North America, Inc. (SCHOTT) announced its collaboration with The Ohio State University (OSU) Nuclear Engineering Program.

To increase OSU’s research capabilities, SCHOTT donated Electrical Penetrations to the Nuclear Engineering Program for various testing in their Risk and Reliability Laboratory. In addition, Joe Hale from SCHOTT Electronic Packaging was named to the OSU Nuclear Engineering Advisory Board, where he will provide guidance and support to the program.***

The SCHOTT Electrical Penetrations, already installed in more than 100 nuclear power plants around the world, will be utilized in the OSU nuclear reactor to test signal transmission performance including the signal distortion rate. The Electrical Penetrations will also test optical fiber performance in elevated temperature and pressure environments for development of optically based instrumentation. SCHOTT’s Electrical Penetrations were selected for testing in this research environment because their glass-to-metal seals offer extremely high levels of safety and can remain gas- and radiation-tight for more than 60 years.***

As a member of the Nuclear Engineering Advisory Board, Joe Hale will join a distinguished group of nuclear industry experts in discussing important issues facing the department. He will also work with Dr. Carol Smidts, Director of the Risk and Reliability Laboratory at the Academic Center for Excellence for Instrumentation, Control, and Safety, and doctoral students Qingti Guo and David Hawn.***

"SCHOTT is committed to excellence in research and development, and we are pleased to have the opportunity to work with The Ohio State University Nuclear Engineering Program to advance safety in nuclear facilities," said Hale. "I look forward to bringing my experience in the nuclear industry to support OSU’s program and helping foster the nuclear engineers of the future." SCHOTT’s collaboration with OSU was brought about through work with Ted Quinn, Chairman of the Nuclear Engineering Advisory Board and former president of the American Nuclear Society.***
