  • How to predict crucial plasma pressure in future fusion facilities
    Feature describes improved model for forecasting the crucial balance of pressure at the edge of a fusion plasma.
  • Students make neutrons dance beneath university campus
    Nuclear reactors are still the primary source for strong neutron beams to create isotopes for geologic dating, radiography and medicine, but researchers have now enlisted engineering students in building a tabletop neutron source that could be nearly as effective. A new study shows that the high flux neutron generator can date rocks as old as 1 million years, as well as fine-gr...
  • Milestones on the way to the nuclear clock
    For decades, people have been searching for suitable atomic nuclei for building an ultra-precise nuclear clock. For a long time it had been conjectured that a specific thorium isotope must have a nuclear state that would be suitable for this purpose. This long-sought core state of thorium has now been demonstrated experimentally for the first time -- twice, by 2 different inter...
  • Laser-produced uranium plasma evolves into more complex species
    Mapping the evolution of complex uranium oxide species has practical applications from Mars exploration to nuclear proliferation detection.
  • Maximum mass of lightest neutrino revealed using astronomical big data
    The mass of the lightest neutrino, an abundant 'ghost' particle found throughout the universe, has been calculated to be at least 6 million times lighter than the mass of an electron.
  • New technique could streamline design of intricate fusion device
    Stellarators, twisty machines that house fusion reactions, rely on complex magnetic coils that are challenging to design and build. Now, a physicist has developed a mathematical technique to help simplify the design of the coils.
  • Lab-based dark energy experiment narrows search options for elusive force
    An experiment to test a popular theory of dark energy has found no evidence of new forces, placing strong constraints on related theories.
  • Simulations demonstrate ion heating by plasma oscillations for fusion energy
    Fusion scientists succeeded in proving that ions can be heated by plasma oscillations driven by high-energy particles. This has been confirmed by performing a large-scale simulation with a newly developed hybrid-simulation program that links calculations for plasma oscillations, high-energy particles and ions. This research will accelerate studies of plasma self-heating for rea...
  • Antineutrino detection could help remotely monitor nuclear reactors
    Technology to measure the flow of subatomic particles known as antineutrinos from nuclear reactors could allow continuous remote monitoring designed to detect fueling changes that might indicate the diversion of nuclear materials. The monitoring could be done from outside the reactor vessel, and the technology may be sensitive enough to detect substitution of a single fuel asse...
  • Improving the magnetic bottle that controls fusion power on Earth
    The exhaustive detection method that discovered the error field in the initial run of the NSTX-U tokamak could serve as a model for error-field detection in future tokamaks.
  • Is your supercomputer stumped? There may be a quantum solution
    A new study details how a quantum computing technique called 'quantum annealing' can be used to solve problems relevant to fundamental questions in nuclear physics about the subatomic building blocks of all matter. It could also help answer other vexing questions in science and industry, too.
  • Technological developments in radiation detectors enhance global nuclear security
    Nuclear power plants can withstand most inclement weather and do not emit harmful greenhouse gases. However, trafficking of the nuclear materials to furnish them with fuel remains a serious issue as security technology continues to be developed. Physicists conducted research to enhance global nuclear security by improving radiation detectors. According to them, improving radiat...
  • Mysterious release of radioactive material uncovered
    It was the most serious release of radioactive material since Fukushima 2011, but the public took little notice of it: In September 2017, a slightly radioactive cloud moved across Europe. Now, a study has been published, analyzing more than 1300 measurements from all over Europe and other regions of the world to find out the cause of this incident.
  • Demonstration of alpha particle confinement capability in helical fusion plasmas
    A team of fusion researchers demonstrated that ions with energy in mega electron volt range are superiorly confined in a plasma for the first time in helical systems. This promises alpha particle confinement required for realizing fusion energy in a helical reactor. The results were obtained by deuterium plasma experiments in the Large Helical Device and with a newly developed ...
  • Balancing beams: Multiple laser beamlets show better electron and ion acceleration
    Researchers show how creating interference patterns with four laser beamlets improves the efficiency of energy transfer when accelerating electron and ion beams. This method can be used to enhance biological and astrophysical research.

Atomic energy technology, politics, and perceptions from a nuclear energy insider who served as a US nuclear submarine engineer officer
  • Atomic Show #267 – Dr. Lauren Jackson addresses radiophobia
    A couple of weeks ago, I heard Dr. (Isabel) Lauren Jackson talking to Bill Nye on his Science Rules podcast. At the end of his discussion with her, Nye seemed to have changed his mind in the positive direction regarding the importance of nuclear energy. He seemed far less worried about radiation and the potential […]
  • What exploded in Russia on Aug 8? My estimate is a (chemical) booster rocket for a nuclear powered cruise missile.
    A cruise missile with a nuclear reactor heated turbofan engine and a liquid fueled booster rocket is the most likely description of the Russian developmental weapons system that exploded while being tested on August 8. It’s likely that the explosion occurred during maintenance or fueling operations on a barge floating off shore and not during […]
  • Radioactive isotopes are too useful to waste
    Forgive me. It’s been almost three months since I last wrote a long form blog or article about the importance of atomic energy as a useful tool for solving many of the world’s most complex and pressing problems. I’ve been stimulated to take a partial break from my blissful state of being a mostly retired […]

  • Are we finally approaching lift-off for a real Renaissance?
    Obituaries of the “Nuclear Renaissance” have been widespread and frequent in the years since the Great Recession and reactions to the Great Northeast Japanese Earthquake and Tsunami.
