Title: The Intersection of Nuclear Science and Nuclear Security


50 years of fundamental antineutrino detection experiments have laid the groundwork for a burgeoning new discipline, Applied Antineutrino Physics. Our LLNL/SNL team has successfully demonstrated the utility of antineutrino detectors for cooperative monitoring of the fissile content of nuclear reactors, non-intrusively and in real time. These capabilities are directly relevant to global nonproliferation and arms control regimes. In addition, many facets of the detector science overlap with needs for next generation dark matter and neutrino experiments. I will discuss results of our several successful deployments of prototype cooperative monitoring antineutrino detectors, and the intersection of this work with nuclear science and particle astrophysics.
