About this Item

20 pages plus covers. Illustrations (color). This is a Special issue of Pulse focusing on the Proton Radiography (p-Rad) Facility at LANSCE. The Los Alamos Neutron Science Center (LANSCE), formerly known as the Los Alamos Meson Physics Facility (LAMPF) is one of the world's most powerful linear accelerators. It is located in Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico in Technical Area 53 (TA-53). It was the most powerful linear accelerator in the world when it was opened in June 1972. The technology used in the accelerator was developed in part by the nuclear physicist Louis Rosen. The facility is capable of accelerating protons up to 800 MeV. Multiple beamlines allow for a variety of experiments to be run at once, and the facility is used for many types of research in materials testing and neutron science. It is also used for medical radioisotope production. LANSCE provides the scientific community with intense sources of neutrons with the capability of performing experiments supporting civilian and national security research. The Department of Energy, National Nuclear Security Administration, Office of Science, Office of Nuclear Energy, and Office of Science and Technology - the principal sponsors of LANSCE - have synergistic long-term needs for the accelerator and neutron science that is the heart of LANSCE. LANSCE provides solutions to national security problems. It serves an international user community conducting diverse forefront basic and applied research. The LANSCE facility supports three of the NNSA's core scientific capabilities: hydrodynamics, weapons nuclear science, materials science. The research is critical to understanding nuclear weapons performance, reliability, and safety. There is a focus on research that helps validate predictive models of weapons performance. The research also helps test new materials and new material models for stockpile stewardship.Hydrodynamics with Proton Radiography (pRad): pRad is unique to LANSCE. pRad provides the capability to probe the dynamic response of materials to shocks, the detonation characteristics of high explosives under a range of environmental conditions, and to make high-speed movies of their dynamic systems.Weapons Neutron Research: Our nuclear measurements are key to the success of the National Boost Initiative and for doing accurate nuclear forensics. Precision measurements of fission cross-sections and fission neutronspectra in actinides are crucial for predicting and determining yield, and are required to accurately quantify the margins and uncertainties in weapons performance. We provide the NNSA the most efficient, cost-effective, and timely capabilities to meet mission requirements.Materials Science for National Security: Our capabilities are specifically tailored to the materials and security requirements of stockpile stewardship and national security research. We are the only facility equipped to carry out classified materials research on stockpile materials and components using a LINAC.Energy Security: The quest for energy security requires R&D on a new class of nuclear reactors, fuels, and materials. Our research is important to the DOE's Advanced Fuel Cycle Initiative (AFCI), focusing on developing a new class of safer, cleaner, and more proliferation-resistant fuels-fuels the nation needs to provide energy security and independence, to protect the environment, and to impede nuclear terrorism.
