Nuclear Physics & Applications

TechSource has across-the-board experience and capabilities in low- and high-energy nuclear physics and its applications. We can evaluate neutron cross-sections and use advanced neutronics codes and cross-sections libraries. We assisted with the development of a gamma-ray detector for the NASA Mars mission, Techsource: Nuclear Physics & Applicationsand are involved in the assessment and study of particle accelerators for the sterilization of medical instruments and supplies, the sterilization of food (fruit and meat), and the treatment of wood products. TechSource is also fully qualified to examine the health effects of ionizing radiation and to apply that knowledge to the design of biological shields and personnel protection. Finally, we assist with the development of radioactive production targets and isotope sources.

TechSource has a Department-wide Reputation for Excellence in Nuclear Physics & Engineering
