Occupational and environmental radiation exposure? Doesn't really sound like something with a lot of potential. But there is, and there's one word to explain why. OIL! It's too damned expensive right now. Most countries with a nuclear infrastructure are beginning to re-invest in nuclear technology and have already come up with plans to build new reactors. Unfortunately for them, since no one has really built a reactor in over a decade, many companies are finding that there's fewer and fewer people who actually KNOW how to build one of last generation's model. This is even more complicated by the fact that many of the new reactors on the books are going to be using new reactor designs (like the kind developed by GE). At the end of the day there's going to be a lot of nervousness and caution with the first new generation of reactors built, which means a lot of testing, a lot of analysis and in short a lot of work for companies like Landauer.
