Title: Atomic Weapons Research Establishment: Nuclear Research (NR) Reports

This series consists of reports produced by the Warhead Physics Department and successors and covers experimental nuclear research undertaken by the Atomic Weapons Research Establishment.

Date: 1958-1966

Initiated in 1957, reports in the NR Series were identified by a letter (designating the subject) followed by a serial number. There are four types of report: NR/A (criticality of nuclear assemblies); NR/C (radiochemistry); NR/D (nuclear devices); and NR/P (nuclear physics). From 1963 until 1966 (when the series was discontinued) reports were issued serially within each year.
