Advanced Manufacturing

The use of ionizing radiation in material processing, device sterilization, and resistance evaluation is long-established and continues to enable advances in manufacturing medical devices, food containers, automobiles, space craft, and other commodities built in the US. The Division’s electron beams and source-based irradiators are used extensively for research in new metrologically-based methods for industry as well as in collaboration with manufacturers and other government agencies in evaluating current devices.
