The Triangle Universities Nuclear Laboratory (TUNL) is a U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Center of
Excellence that focuses on low-energy nuclear physics research. TUNL is a consortium of three major
research universities in the North Carolina Research Triangle Area: Duke University, North Carolina
State University, and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. From these three and other
collaborating Universities, about 30 faculty members, 20 postdocs and research scientists, and 50
graduate students conduct research at TUNL.
