NTF with Dean Thompson

Relation of Institute's mission to the missions of the Physics Department, the College of Science, and the University

As part of a major university, the Nevada Terawatt Facility also has a mission to train and graduate students at all levels: PhD and MS graduate students, and BS undergraduate students.

Within its HED research focus, the NTF emphasizes Z-pinch physics and high intensity laser-plasma interactions. These advanced areas of research are magnets for students coming into the UNR Department of Physics.  Students have the opportunity to work and receive training on scaled-down versions of the largest research facilities in the country, such as the Z-Accelerator at Sandia National Laboratory and the National Ignition Facility (NIF) at the Livermore National Laboratory.
