Welcome to CEAR

CEAR was established at North Carolina State University in 1980 to advance the measurement use of radisotopes (and radiation) and to produce highly trained graduate students and postdoctoral professionals for that industry. CEAR's faculty, Post Docs, and graduate students continue to do research at the frontier of this area, which by its very nature applies to a very broad area of technologies and sciences. CEAR has had government contracts with the USAEC, NASA, the National Cooperative Highway Research Program, EPA, NSF, NIH, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), NNSA/DOE, and Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) and industrial contracts with EXXON, DuPont, Alcoa, Energy Technologies Inc (ETI), Amoco, Conoco, ARCO, Mobil, Halliburton, Baker Atlas, Weatherford, Teleco, Japan National Oil Company, Shell, Computalog, Pathfinder, and Hexion (now Momentive). While this area of research and application is primarily experimental by nature, CEAR has concentrated from the beginning on the mathematical modeling (especially by Monte Carlo simulation) that is essential to understanding and use of this technology.
