The Nuclear Science User Facilities marked its 10th anniverary on April 13. NSUF was created April 13, 2007, when the U.S. Department of Energy's Office of Nuclear Energy designated INL's Advanced Test Reactor as a national scientific user facility. NSUF is DOE-NE's first—and only—user facility. ATR is celebrating its 50th anniversary later this year.
NSUF has grown over the past 10 years to include 12 partner facilities and 42 participating institutions. Researchers around the world access extensive state-of-the-art nuclear research capabilities through NSUF's open and competitive review process. NSUF projects include major irradiation (neutron and ion), post-irradiation examinations and beamline experiments.
