About: From experiment to radiation transport calculations Nuclear data is the foundation of all radiation transport calculations. Nuclear data research is where raw experimental data meets state-of-the-art physical models and gets folded into a single nuclear data evaluation that is released to the end-user community. Nuclear data users include fission and fusion research, medical research, nuclear astrophysics and many others. This course covers the techniques currently applied in nuclear data evaluation.
