Dr. Jason Brodsky is a LLNL staff scientist developing advanced detector designs for science and nonproliferation applications. He is a member of the nEXO collaboration for neutrinoless double beta decay, building a liquid xenon detector for a decay with a half-life longer than the age of the universe. He also is developing scintillator metamaterials for nuclear nonproliferation. These metamaterials enable new radiation detectors with sophisticated capabilities but the low cost and complexity of traditional scintillation detectors. Dr. Brodsky received his PhD in Physics from Princeton University in 2015 and conducted his postdoctoral research at LLNL on nEXO and the short baseline reactor antineutrino experiment PROSPECT.
