Sensors & Instrumentation and NDE Applications

Research and development related to instruments and non-destructive evaluation (NDE) techniques for characterization of materials and determination of system parameters related to different energy systems (including fossil, transportation, and nuclear). Development of sensors and technologies for non-energy-producing applications such as homeland security.

Nuclear Forensics

Nuclear Forensics researchers identify chemical and isotopic "fingerprints" in radioactive materials that can be used to track the source of stolen nuclear and radiological materials.

Nanoscale Engineering

Researchers in Nanoscale Engineering seek to bridge the gap between fundamental discoveries in nanotechnology and practical problems in energy and national security.
