Nuclear Science and Technology

The INL was established in 1949 to take on the top-priority mission of harnessing the power of the atom for peaceful applications.

In the years that followed, thousands of world-class scientists and engineers made Idaho their home, and devoted their careers to advancing the state of the art nuclear research and development.

Today, one of the main focus areas of the INL is meeting the nation's energy and nuclear technology needs.
