University of Rochester

Nuclear Chemistry Research Group

Home Page

 

The 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.

The research is sponsored by grants from the United States Department of Energy.

The 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.

Educational opportunities are provided for training in experimental and theoretical nuclear science at the undergraduate, graduate, and post-graduate levels.
