The workshop will be held at the Argonne office in L’Enfant Plaza in Washington, DC from June 27-28, 2023. Virtual attendance will also be supported. The workshop is supported by U.S. Department of Energy/National Nuclear Security Adminisstration (DOE/NNSA) Office of International Safeguards.
The objective of this workshop is to produce a roadmap for priority nuclear data, stakeholders, and funding opportunities. Presentations are invitation only, however the workshop will include intensive discussion sessions where all attendees can contribute to. Please contact workshop chairs and the coordinator for contributed presentations.
Specific topics of the workshop include:

Overview of microcalorimeter technologies and applications to safeguards

For over two decades, X-ray microcalorimeters, provided by the NASA/GSFC calorimeter group, have been work-horse spectrometers at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory's Electron Beam Ion Trap (EBIT) facility. Their high spectral resolution across a broad energy band have enabled many atomic physics and laboratory astrophysics measurements. While many of these measurements focus on the energy range of 0.2-10 keV, the EBIT Calorimeter Spectrometer (ECS) also houses a high-energy array covering a bandpass of 1 to over 100 keV. I will introduce the calorimeters employed at the LLNL EBIT and show examples of measurements conducted with them.
