Radiation Control (RadCon) Department




We are dedicated to developing and administering effective policies and procedures that maintain doses as low as reasonably achievable (ALARA) and prevent over exposures while supporting the Lab’s mission of conducting basic research of the atom's nucleus using the unique CEBAF particle accelerator.
