August 2-7, 2015 The 2015 Exotic Beam Summer School is for the first time hosted by an ARUNA Lab, The John D. Fox Accelerator at Florida State University. The program is available here.

August 18-20, 2014 Low Energy and Nuclear Astrophysics Townmeeting in College Station, TX. The summary of the ARUNA white-paper and the ARUNA facilities was presented prominently. Thanks also to our hosts at the Texas A&M Cyclotron Lab, who were the first of the ARUNA labs to host such a Townmeeting.

June 12-13, 2014 The first ARUNA workshop was held at the University of Notre Dame with 59 registered participants from 20 institutions. The workshop developed the content for an ARUNA white-paper as input to the NSAC Long Range Plan. The program and presentations can be found at the workshop-page .

We aim to:

  • Maximize and optimize the use of all nuclear accelerator facilities at universities in the U.S.
  • Increase the opportunities for education of the science- and technology-literate work force at these facilities
  • Document and coordinate the scientific capabilities available
  • Coordinate the scientific program at these facilities and place it in the context of the national science endeavor

  • Report by the Rare-Isotope Beam Task Force to NSAC (2007)

    Low-energy University- based Facilities...constitute an extremely productive and cost effective component of the national program...These facilities play an important role as focal points for attracting and educating the next generation of nuclear scientists.
