Our Capabilities

FURNACE (Coming Soon!)

The Facility for University-based Reactor and Nuclear Astrophysics Capture Experiments (FURNACE) will perform nuclear data experiments needed to improve modeling of fast reactors and astrophysical nucleosynthesis in the 1-1000 keV energy region.

High-intensity neutron and “cocktail” beams for space radiation hardness testing

The BASE Facility operates in conjunction with the 88-Inch Cyclotron at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory to provide beams of heavy ions, protons, and neutrons for radiation effects testing. The very first single event effects (SEE) tests in the world were conducted here by The Aerospace Corporation in 1979, and we continue to be at the forefront of radiation effects testing to this day. 

Materials assay and fabrication

Includes scanning electron microscopy, focused ion beam and pulsed laser systems.

Coming soon!
