Wanted: Information leading to a neutron source for fusion energy R&D
The Department of Energy’s Office of Science published a notice in the March 27 Federal Register calling for input on technological approaches to a Fusion Prototypic Neutron Source (FPNS) for materials irradiation research under DOE-SC’s Fusion Energy Sciences program, as well as partnership models that could accelerate the construction and delivery of the facility. The request for information (RFI) calls for responses by May 11.

Nuclear non-proliferation and international safeguards are important national security topics that require significant nuclear engineering expertise. Yet, most nuclear engineering programs do not require students to take a non-proliferation course, and some nuclear degree-granting universities don't even offer such a course. Luckily, there are a variety of opportunities for students to develop their expertise in non-proliferation, from internships and short courses, to graduate fellowships and post-degree programs. Students and recent graduates who have participated in these extra-curricular programs will share their experience and recommend ways for students to develop their expertise and prepare for a career in nuclear non-proliferation and international safeguards.
