University of Rochester Nuclear Chemistry group performs basic research
in nuclear science and applied nuclear R&D. The present focus is on explorations of the dynamics
of complex nuclear reactions and the response of nuclear matter in energetic
collisions of light and heavy ions with heavy target nuclei. A new direction pursues light-ion nuclear reactions in thermonuclear plasma environments and reactions induced by laser accelerated ions. Applied R&D support basic nuclear science and energy related projects. They include studies of the tritium cycle in inertial confinement fusion systems.
is sponsored by grants from the United States Department of Energy.
group has active experimental research programs at several national
and international nuclear research facilities. Most of these programs
are conducted in the framework of international collaborations.
opportunities are provided for training in experimental and theoretical
nuclear science at the undergraduate, graduate, and post-graduate levels.
