We are developing technologies that will enable direct, non-intrusive monitoring of any nuclear reactor via detection of reactor antineutrinos. This technology will help to enable the safe roll out of nuclear energy to nations across the globe while also advancing the frontiers of nuclear and high-energy physics.
