a WSU User Facility


The WSU Nuclear Science Center (NSC) provides a collaborative environment where WSU faculty, staff, students, and clients can succeed in their basic and applied nuclear science research goals.  The NSC prepares WSU students for successful entry into the scientific workforce, provides the pathway to discovery in novel research, and makes impactful contributions to science and to the people who work and study here. The Center is a multidisciplinary teaching, research, and service endeavor designed to make high-impact contributions to nuclear science, national and international security, nuclear non-proliferation, and emergency readiness.

The Nuclear & Chemical Science Core Facility was created to facilitate instrumentation and data gathering across areas of WSU with specialization in nuclear and radiochemistry, X-ray investigation and probing of materials, and nuclear magnetic resonance instrumentation.

The NSC is an active member of the WSU/PNNL Nuclear Science & Technology Institute (NSTI), a joint research collaboration of Washington State University and Pacific Northwest National Laboratory.
