Ronald A. Brightsen, 76, a nuclear scientist who retired in 1985 from the Nuclear Regulatory Commission's safeguard division as assistant director for licensing, died of liver and kidney failure Dec. 20 at Cameron Glen Care Center in Reston.

After he retired, Mr. Brightsen headed a small firm, Clustron Sciences, where he continued his research on the structure of the atom. The model he developed was based on three bound clusters of protons and neutrons, rather than a separate proton and neutron composition of the atomic nucleus.

Mr. Brightsen was a native of Brooklyn, N.Y., and a graduate of ... -
