Research Expertise and Interest
nuclear astrophysics, experimental nuclear physics, homeland security, neutrinos
Professor Norman has performed research in homeland security, neutrino physics, and nuclear astrophysics. He is the co-discoverer of 4 isotopes.
Current Research Focus:
- Cryogenic Underground Observatory for Rare Events (CUORE) – a large-scale bolometric detector designed to search for the neutrinoless double beta decay of 130 Te.
- Measurements of neutron and charged-particle induced reaction cross sections for homeland security, nuclear astrophysics, and neutrino physics.
- Gamma-ray measurements for nuclear forensic applications
