Doctoral Fellowships in Applied Antineutrino Physics

The Consortium for Monitoring, Technology, and Verification (MTV) will support emerging research needs in the area of antineutrino physics applied to nuclear nonproliferation. The emission of antineutrinos from beta decay is a signature that may be harnessed to enable significant new capabilities for nonproliferation. Antineutrino emission rates are directly proportional to reactor power and methods Continue Reading »
