The TUNL Laboratory

The TUNL Laboratory

Our experimental work is conducted at the Triangle Universities Nuclear Laboratory (TUNL). TUNL is a consortium of North Carolina State University, Duke, and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.


TUNL consists of three main accelerator facilities:

The Enge Split-pole Spectrograph

The Enge Split-pole Spectrograph

The centerpiece of our experimental equipment is the Enge Split-pole Spectrograph: a high resolution particle spectrometer dedicated to nuclear astrophysics experiments. By using a high-field magnet, particles are bent depending on their momentum and detected at a focalplane. Features of the Enge splitpole include:
