Jun 07, 2012 Greg Jones: Iran's Rapid Enrichment Progress
In Greg Jones' latest evaluation of the IAEA's May 25th Iran safeguards report, he notes that in the last six months, Iran increased its production of 3.5% enriched uranium by roughly 60%. In addition, Iran installed 1,000 new centrifuges at its fortified Fordow facility. As a result, Greg now calculates that Iran could produce a bomb, if it chose, in as little as five to fourteen weeks.  
Jun 05, 2012 Scott Kemp: Centrifuges: A New Era for Nuclear Proliferation
NPEC asked Associate Research Scholar at Princeton University and a Former Science Advisor on nonproliferation for the U.S. Department of State Scott Kemp to write a study on centrifuges. Scott explains that centrifuge technology can be fairly easily developed  in a matter of 36 months using a Soviet-like design and gives both technical and historical evidence for this.
May 26, 2012 Matthew Kroenig: The History of Proliferation Optimism: Does It Have A Future?
NPEC asked Council on Foreign Relations Stanton Nuclear Security Fellow and Georgetown University assistant professor of government Matthew Kroenig to review the bidding.  His take and bottom line is that such nuclear optimism always was strained, that it remains far less popular out of academe than in and with cause.

Mar 26, 2012 Greg Jones: Facing the Reality of Iran as a De Facto Nuclear State
NPEC Senior Researcher Greg Jones argues that Iran can produce a nuclear weapon in such a short amount of time that it should already be considered a de facto nuclear state. He also claims that neither sanctions, diplomacy, a military strike or any combination of these can prevent Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons.
