  • WELCOME! At U.C. Berkeley, nuclear engineers are leading in research that will enable long-term sustainable and economic production of nuclear energy from fission and fusion; provide for responsible recycling and disposal of nuclear wastes; develop advanced, radiation tolerant materials for high-temperature applications; assure security by detecting illicit transfers of nuclear materials; and advance applications of nuclear methods for medical imaging and therapy.

  • NEWS HIGHLIGHT: The Radwatch Air Monitoring team has put together a unique system that serves high-resolution gamma-ray data hourly to monitor naturally occurring, airborne radioactivity. Weather data are also served to provide insight to correlations that exist in the transport of these radionuclides.
