Longland Group

Dr. Longland receives DOE Early Career Award!

Dr. Richard Longland received the prestigious Department of Energy Early Career Award from the Office of Nuclear Physics. The Early Career Award program supports the development of individual research programs of outstanding scientists early in their careers and stimulates research careers in the disciplines supported by the DOE Office of Science.

The award will help Dr. Longland in his research to determine the rate of nuclear reaction in stars and stellar explosions. These experiments are challenging to perform, and the funds received will enable his group to build a world-class program using particle transfer reactions at the Facility for Experiments on Nuclear Reactions in Stars (FENRIS)

Out of about 700 proposals, just 59 were selected.
