Nuclear Science User Facilities
Nuclear Science: Discovery through collaboration
Nuclear energy is a clean and affordable energy source that reduces greenhouse gas emissions and supports a secure domestic energy portfolio. Research is needed to understand how radiation environments affect existing and proposed new reactor materials over time.
Nuclear Science User Facilities merges the national nuclear research infrastructure with intellectual capital to pair the best ideas with the needed capability. NSUF provides no-cost access to specialized instrumentation and expertise to carry out experiments that could not be done in individual laboratories.
Nuclear Science User Facilities and its partners represent a prototype laboratory for the future. This unique model utilizes a distributed partnership with each facility bringing exceptional capabilities to the relationship including reactors, beamlines, state-of-the-art instruments, hot cells and most importantly, expert mentors.
