Section Description

Advanced Laboratory on Physics Technology and Policy of Nuclear Safeguards and Nonproliferation. Registration in the lecture requires registration in one of the Laboratory sections, either in-person NPRE 498 NS or on-line NPRE NSO. This laboratory course focuses on the science, technology and policy associated with nuclear safeguards, security and verification. Throughout the semester, the students will design and develop selected experimental systems which can be used to identify, characterize, image, and quantify special nuclear materials. The lab sessions implement a unique model where students need to fully develop selected experiments, from design to validation and testing. Students will become familiar with experimental techniques employed in contemporary research and industrial laboratories, and learn different software, CAD, and hardware tools, depending on the specific experiment. Guest lecturers from the International Atomic Energy Agency, Sandia National Lab and Argonne
