Unmaking the Bomb:The Science &Technology of Nuclear Nonproliferation, Disarmament, and Verification

MAE 354

Info tab content
Nuclear weapons have re-emerged as one of the main global security challenges of our time. Reducing the dangers posed by these weapons will require new verification technologies, and this course covers the relevant science and technology to understand and support such efforts. In the first half of the semester, we will examine the fundamental principles of nuclear fission, nuclear radiation, and radiation detection. As part of hands-on final projects in the second half of the semester, teams of students will prototype and benchmark inspection systems and test them during a joint verification exercise.
