Areas of Impact
NERS research advances important fields:
Health and environment
Enabling scientific discovery
Labs and Facilities
Toward safer, long-life nuclear reactors
Metal alloy design could raise radiation resistance by 100 times.
Nuclear nonproliferation for the next generation
Early accomplishments include better detectors and new cryptography-inspired nuclear warhead assessments.
Toward universal cargo scans for nuclear weapon materials
Current methods produce high radiation doses, but a gentler scan has proven to be effective.
