Nuclear Physics Expert Witnesses
Nuclear physics is the branch of physics that deals with the structure of the nucleus of the atom. In the atom’s nucleus, energy is released when it is split or fused. Inside the atom there are protons and neutrons. These particles are 10,000 times smaller than the atom itself. When they merge nuclear fusion occurs when one nucleus is split into two or more parts. As a result, nuclear energies 1,000,000 times larger than the normal amount of atomic energy are released. With hundreds of years of combined experience, our nuclear physics experts have successfully testified for both plaintiffs and defense in a variety of cases and are prolific international authors and lecturers. Their published works span topics that include radiation in space, radon in homes, radioactive waste, polarized beams, energy recovery linacs, electromagnetic fields, accelerator mass spectrometry, building early warning systems for solar storms, confining high-temperature plasmas in magnetic traps, and properties of dense matter.
