On June 25, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) selected four projects that will take advantage of Nuclear Science User Facilities (NSUF) capabilities to investigate important nuclear fuel and material applications. DOE has selected one university, two national laboratory, and one industry led project. These projects will be supported by almost $4 million in facility access costs and expertise for experimental neutron and ion irradiation testing, post-irradiation examination, and technical assistance for design and analysis of experiments through the NSUF. A complete list of NSUF projects with their associated abstracts is listed on neup.inl.gov.
Department of Energy Nuclear Science User Facilities Awards 29 Rapid Turnaround Experiment Proposals
IDAHO FALLS -- The U.S. Department of Energy - Office of Nuclear Energy (DOE-NE) Nuclear Science User Facilities (NSUF) has selected 29 new Rapid Turnaround Experiment (RTE) projects, totaling approximately $1.14M. These project awards went to 13 principal investigators from universities, nine from national laboratories, four from industry, and three foreign universities. The NSUF competitively selected these projects from a pool of high-quality RTE proposals submitted during the solicitation period. Each proposal was evaluated based on a variety of factors including technical approach, mission relevance, and scientific-technical merit. The NSUF, managed by Idaho National Laboratory (INL), provides unparalleled opportunities
