The Applied Physics Institute (API) was established in 1994 at Western Kentucky University (WKU) as a nuclear research facility. API has about 15,000 sq. ft. of laboratory and office space at the WKU Center for Research and Development. In addition, a 10,000 sq. ft. outdoor facility is available which is licensed for the use of radioactive materials and radiation-producing machines. The API is licensed for radioactive material handling and research. Over the years, the research scope of the API evolved, and currently it is a multidisciplinary center performing research and development projects in Materials Science and Advanced Manufacturing, Environmental and Energy Technologies, Information Technology and Nanotechnology. Besides conducting research, the API is an efficient teaching facility.
