The center forms informal partnership with many domestic and international institutions. These institutions include GSI Swift Heavy Ion Facility in Germany, Institute for Transuranium Elements (ITU) – a European Commission Joint Research Centre in Germany, Atomic Energy Canada Limited, Los Alamos National Laboratory, University of Alabama – Tuscaloosa, and University of Illinois.

In addition to using the facilities at center members’ own institutions, the center leverages many DOE national user facilities. They are Intermediate Voltage Electron Microscope (IVEM) and Advanced Photon Source (APS) at Argonne National Laboratory, Advanced Test Reactor (ATR) National Scientific User Facility at Idaho National Laboratory, High Flux Isotope Reactor and Spallation Neutron Source at Oakridge National Laboratory.
