The Nuclear Verification and Disarmament Group, sponsored by a FREIGEIST-Fellowship of the Volkswagen Stiftung, is a junior research group that conducts research on verification approaches to make progress on nuclear disarmament. The research lies at the crossroads of experimental physics, computational nuclear engineering as well as the social sciences. It seeks to develop new “nuclear archaeology” tools to reconstruct how much weapons-usable materials have been produced in the past.
