Consortium for Nuclear Forensics


The Consortium for Nuclear Forensics (CNF) is the latest consortium sponsored by theUS Department of Energy’s National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA). It focuses on nuclear forensics research and education involving rapid turnaround forensics, advanced analytical methods, ultrasensitive measurements, signature discovery and prompt effects. These efforts are achieved through combined expertise in radiochemistry, geochemistry, analytical chemistry, nuclear material science, shock physics, quantum-enabling sensing, HPC, data science, and AI.

The CNF team includes members from the University of Florida; The University of Tennessee; the University of California, Berkeley; the University of Central Florida; the City University of New York; Clemson University; George Washington University; Iowa State University; the University of Michigan; the University of Nevada, Las Vegas; North Carolina State University; the University of Notre Dame; Oregon State University; Penn State; Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory; Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory; Los Alamos National Laboratory; Oak Ridge National Laboratory; Pacific Northwest National Laboratory; Sandia National Laboratory; and Savannah River National Laboratory.
