The National Center for Electron Beam Research (NCEBR) is the leading academic and research organization in the world that is focused on the research, development, and commercialization of Electron Beam (eBeam) and X-ray technologies. Our goal is to exploit these technologies for improving the quality of life of peoples and economies around the world. Our vision is to harness eBeam and X-ray technologies for cleaning, healing, feeding, and shaping this world and beyond…. As the National Center for Electron Beam Research, our focus is to advance this technology in the United States and worldwide. Our research and commercialization activities are targeted to expanding this technology so that new businesses and new jobs are created around this technology and its varied applications.
The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has conferred the designation of “IAEA Collaborating Center for Electron Beam Technology for food, health and the environment” to the National Center for Electron Beam Research. This is an extremely prestigious designation and places Texas A&M University System as the global leader in the commercial application of eBeam technologies. The mission of the IAEA is “Atoms for Peace” and this is exactly what we do at the eBeam Center. We harness and exploit high energy electrons to improve the quality of lives… Read More →
