White Papers




Neutron Beams, s-process, and NIF

We are interested in any comments on the future of nuclear astrophysics research with respect s-process nucleosynthesis, neutron beam measurements and facilities, and measurements in High Energy Density Plasmas at NIF, among other facilities.

We are interested in any comments on how the draft white paper could be improved.

Please contact Aaron (acouture at or Lee (bernstein2 at to send your recommendations.

Submissions will be posted here as soon as possible.
