The purposes of the Radiation Effects Committee (REC) of the IEEE Nuclear and Plasma Sciences Society are to advance the theory and application of radiation effects and its allied sciences, to disseminate information pertaining to those fields, and to maintain high scientific and technical standards among its members.

The Committee aids in promoting close cooperation and the exchange of technical information among its members. This is done by running conferences for the presentation and discussion of original contributions, assisting in the publication of technical papers on radiation effects in the IEEE Transactions on Nuclear Science, coordinating development of radiation effects measurement definitions and standards within IEEE and other standards organizations, providing a sounding board for radiation effects specialists, providing for the continued professional development and needs of its members, and providing liaisons between IEEE and other technical organizations in the areas of radiation effects.

Each year, the REC provides a forum for the technical exchange of information by holding the Nuclear and Space Radiation Effects Conference (NSREC). The NSREC is an international forum for presentation of research papers on nuclear and space radiation effects. This includes effects on electronic and photonic materials, devices, circuits, sensors, and systems, as well as semiconductor processing technology and design techniques for producing radiation-tolerant (hardened) devices and integrated circuits. Papers presented at the NSREC are submitted for possible publication in the January issue of the IEEE Transactions on Nuclear Science.

NSREC 2022 will be held in Provo, Utah, July 18-22 2022 at the Utah Valley Convention Center. Thomas Turflinger, The Aerospace Corporation, is the Conference Chair. Supporters of the 2022 NSREC include The Aerospace Corporation; Analog Devices; Boeing; CAES; EMPC; EPC Space; Honeywell; IR HiRel Products, an Infineon Technologies Company; Jet Propulsion Laboratory; L3Harris; Radiation Test Solutions; Renesas; Skywater Technologies; and Southwest Research Institute. We thank our supporters for their significant and continuing commitments to the conference and welcome other organizations to consider becoming supporters of the IEEE NSREC.

NSREC 2023 will be held in Kansas City, Missouri, July 24-28, 2023 at the Sheraton Kansas City Hotel at Crown Center , Keith Avery, Air Force Research Laboratory is the Chairman. Heather Quinn is the Chairwoman for NSREC 2024 in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada at the Shaw Center. Dolores Black, Sandia National Laboratories, was selected as the 2025 NSREC Chairwoman.

Papers presented at the 2022 NSREC are eligible for publication in the January 2023 issue of the IEEE Transactions on Nuclear Science. Authors must upload their papers prior to the conference for consideration for publication in the January 2023 TNS Special Issue. Detailed instructions can be found at

Now is the time to join the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) and the Nuclear Plasma Sciences Society (NPSS). Why? First of all, you’ll become a member of the largest professional engineering society in the world. About 60% of NSREC attendees are IEEE members. The cost of membership in the IEEE depends on your country and your career phase. IEEE members receive access to a broad range of benefits, including a terrific insurance program, on-line access to IEEE publications, and reduced rates at all IEEE sponsored conferences, including, of course, the IEEE NSREC and Short Course!

NPSS membership is $35. NPSS members receive a free subscription to NPSS News, and free on-line electronic access via IEEE Xplore to the IEEE Transactions on Nuclear Science (TNS) and the NSREC Data Workshop Record. Now members can search and view digital copies of all IEEE TNS papers on-line all the way back to the first IEEE NSREC in 1964. NPSS members get to vote in our NSREC elections, held at the annual open meeting held during the conference. What are you waiting for? Apply for membership at or visit the IEEE registration desk at the conference.


NSREC has two publications each year:

  • IEEE Transactions on Nuclear Science. This IEEE journal is the official archive of research papers presented at NSREC. Papers presented at the conference undergo an additional review before they are accepted for the January 2023 issue.
  • Radiation Effects Data Workshop Record. Published each year in October, this IEEE proceedings has become the source for radiation test data on semiconductor components.

A complimentary copy of the 2022 IEEE Radiation Effects Data Workshop Record and the January 2023 special NSREC issue of the IEEE Transactions on Nuclear Science will be mailed to each NSREC technical session attendee if the attendee registered to be listed
on the attendee list.


4:30 – 7:00

You are invited to attend the IEEE Radiation Effects Committee's Annual Open Meeting on Thursday, July 23, 4:30 – 7:00 All conference attendees are encouraged to attend.

During the meeting we will discuss the 2022 conference and future IEEE Nuclear and Space Radiation Effects Conferences. A report on the nomination processes for the 2022 Junior Member-at-Large on the Radiation Effect Steering Group and the 2021 nominating committee will be presented. Voting instructions for IEEE NPSS members will be provided.
