University of Rochester Nuclear Science Research Group performs basic research
in nuclear science and applied nuclear R&D: Nuclear/cluster transfer, thermo-nuclear fusion and breakup reactions at low energies, nuclear plasma/astro physics, nuclear thermodynamics. Light-ion reactions in a thermonuclear environment. Inelastic scattering and reactions induced by neutrons. Physico-chemical transport processes and chemical interactions of tritium with metals.
are conducted in the framework of collaborations with groups at the UR Laboratory for Laser Energetics (LLE). Consult a recent group activity brief.
Opportunities are provided for training in experimental and theoretical
nuclear science (chemistry and physics) at the undergraduate, graduate, and post-graduate levels. The group's outreach program sponsors research internships for high school students.
Lectures for the public on nuclear fission power, its status and perspectives have been given at various colleges and departments..
Past noteworthy events:
The Advanced Nuclear Science Education Laboratory "ANSEL" was attended by the inaugural class of UR undergraduate and graduate students during the Spring Term of 2010. From then on, ANSEL has been offered every year. The laboratory was funded by the NRC and is sustained collaboratively by the Departments of Chemistry and Physics and Astronomy.
