Nuclear Science

The DOE NNSA SSGF program supports investigations leading to greater accuracy in the knowledge of nuclear science with an emphasis on low energies; some examples include:

  • development of advanced simulations and measurement techniques leading to improved radiation and particle detection methods
  • a more complete understanding of the physics of the fission process
  • advanced diagnostic techniques relevant to high-energy proton radiography and X-ray radiography
  • development of experimental diagnostic techniques for laser or pulsed power implosion systems
