Physics Nuclear/Facilities

  • Californium User Facility for Neutron Science - Established to promote research and applications of 252Cf by taking advantage of the existing Californium Facility Infrastructure.
  • CERN - European Laboratory for Particle Physics. Includes an introduction of the laboratory, information on experiments being conducted, publication archives, photos and press releases.
  • DOE's Office of High Energy and Nuclear Physics - Administers a $1 billion/year research program in the U.S. Most high energy and nuclear physics research is conducted using accelerators which produce beams of subatomic particles (e.g., protons and electrons) or nuclei moving essentially at the speed of light. When a beam is collided with another beam or a fixed target, new particles are created from the kinetic energy in the beam.
  • Gesellschaft für Schwerionenforschung mbH, Darmstadt, Germany - GSI is a heavy ion research center. The laboratory performs basic and applied research in physics and related natural science disciplines using a heavy ion accelerator facility.
  • Holifield Radioactive Ion Beam Facility - Devoted to low-energy nuclear structure and astrophysics research. Radioactive ions are produced by the K=105 Oak Ridge Isochronous Cyclotron (ORIC). The radioactive elements are injected into the 25 MV Tandem Accelerator producing beams of 0.1-10 MeV per nucleon for light nuclei and up to 5 MeV per nucleon for mass 80. These beams are ideal for research in nuclear astrophysics and nuclear structure.
  • Joint Institute for Nuclear Astrophysics - Physics Frontiers Center provides data and opportunities for research and education at the interface or nuclear physics and astrophysics
  • Kernfysisch Versneller Instituut (KVI) - Nuclear physics institute in Groningen, Netherlands, has AGOR cyclotron.
  • KFKI Research Institute for Particle and Nuclear Physics - A division of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences. Information on organisation, activities, publications, prizes and conferences.
  • MIT Bates Linear Accelerator Laboratory - A 1 GeV electron linear accelerator used in nuclear physics research.
  • National Superconducting Cyclotron Laboratory - National user facility located at Michigan State University, operating two coupled cyclotrons for basic research in nuclear science as well as accelerator and instrumentation research and development.
  • Neutron Sciences - Oak Ridge National Laboratory - Today at ORNL neutron research is conducted at the Oak Ridge Linear Accelerator and at the High Flux Isotope Reactor. Future research will be supported by the Spallation Neutron Source and by the Joint Institute for Neutron Sciences
  • Oak Ridge Electron Linear Accelerator Pulsed Neutron Source - The ORELA is a powerful electron accelerator-based neutron source located in the Physics Division of Oak Ridge National Laboratory.
  • Spallation Neutron Source - The Spallation Neutron Source (SNS) will provide the most intense pulsed neutron beams in the world for scientific research and industrial development.
  • United States Geological Survey TRIGA Nuclear Reactor - A research reactor for the USGS. Assists in elemental composition determination of rock samples by neutron activation analysis.
  • Ward Center for Nuclear Sciences, Cornell University - Neutron activation trace element analysis, neutron radiography, nuclear instrumentation testing, neutron induced auto-radiography of paintings.
  • Wright Nuclear Structure Laboratory, Yale University - DOE-funded accelerator laboratory for Nuclear Physics research.
