UNM nuclear engineers part of national consortium to strengthen nuclear security

Researchers from The University of New Mexico Department of Nuclear Engineering are part of a 14-university team that will seek to improve capabilities to monitor the global nuclear fuel cycle, with the overall charge of boosting nuclear safety. UNM is part of the Consortium for Monitoring, Technology and Verification, which will focus on nuclear and particle physics, signals and source terms, and the physics of monitoring nuclear materials. The science generated will advance the national capability to detect and characterize foreign nuclear weapons development programs and detect activities not in compliance with current treaty obligations.
