  • Supporting Nuclear Science with NSLS-II

    October 22, 2021

    Our modern world depends on safe and reliable energy. The third largest contributor to the U.S. energy market is nuclear facilities. To ensure safe and reliable operation of these facilities, it is not only essential to inspect the existing facilities but also to develop new materials to build future facilities. As a U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Science User Facility, the National Synchrotron Light Source II (NSLS-II) at DOE's Brookhaven National Laboratory supports these efforts by offering advanced research tools. By using the ultrabright x-rays at NSLS-II, researchers can study the origin and makeup of nuclear materials.
