About TUNL

The Triangle Universities Nuclear Laboratory, or TUNL, is a U.S. Dept. of Energy Center of Excellence. We’re a consortium of 4 universities: Duke University, North Carolina Central University, North Carolina State University, and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Our mission is to advance the frontiers of nuclear physics and to educate students and young scientists so that they can contribute to society across a wide range of technical fields, including nuclear physics. TUNL's work is conducted by 20 faculty, 21 research scientists and postdocs, 15 staff, about 40 graduate students, and about 25 undergraduates.
