Cade Dembski

Nuclear Science Lab researcher and ND Department of Physics and Astronomy graduate student Cade Dembski has been selected as a 2023 National Science Foundation (NSF) Graduate Research Fellow.  Cade's project is entitled "Measuring Nuclear Fusion Rates to Study Astrophysical Explosions and Nucleosynthesis" and will create a world-unique particle-decay spectrometer at the NSL TriSol facility to study exotic nuclear decays of astrophysical interest, and he is working under the guidance of Prof. Dan Bardayan.

Inaugurated in 1952, the NSF Graduate Research Fellowship Program recognizes and supports outstanding students in the NSF-supported STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) disciplines who are pursuing research-based master’s and doctoral degrees at accredited U.S. institutions. It is the oldest graduate fellowship of its kind.
