  • Space-based radar suggests North Korean nuke equivalent to '17 Hiroshimas'
    A team of scientists have used satellite data to augment measurements of North Korean nuclear tests on the ground. The researchers find that the most recent test shifted the ground by a few meters, and estimate it to be equivalent to 17 times the size of the bomb dropped on Hiroshima in 1945.
  • Deep learning expands study of nuclear waste remediation
    A research collaboration has achieved exaflop performance with a deep learning application used to model subsurface flow in the study of nuclear waste remediation.
  • New measurement yields smaller proton radius
    Using the first new method in half a century for measuring the size of the proton via electron scattering, scientists have produced a new value for the proton's radius in a new experiment.
  • Cage molecules act as molecular sieves for hydrogen isotope separation
    Researchers have created hybrid porous organic cages capable of high-performance quantum sieving that could help advance the deuterium/hydrogen isotope separation technologies needed for fusion power.
  • Sponge-like 2D material with interesting electrical conductivity and magnetic properties
    Researchers synthesize a new 2D Metal Organic Framework with an ever-growing list of possible applications.
  • Microrobots clean up radioactive waste
    According to some experts, nuclear power holds great promise for meeting the world's growing energy demands without generating greenhouse gases. But scientists need to find a way to remove radioactive isotopes, both from wastewater generated by nuclear power plants and from the environment in case of a spill. Now, researchers have developed tiny, self-propelled robots that remo...
  • Chemistry: Scientist confirm a new 'magic number' for neutrons
    Scientists have shown that 34 is a ''magic number'' for neutrons, meaning that atomic nuclei with 34 neutrons are more stable than would normally be expected. Earlier experiments had suggested, but not clearly demonstrated, that this would be the case.
  • Magneto-inertial fusion experiment nears completion
    The Plasma Liner Experiment will soon test the potential for a novel plasma fusion concept, while offering insights into the physics of colliding plasma jets.
  • New insights could help tame speedy ions in fusion plasmas
    To create a practical fusion energy reactor, researchers need to control particles known as fast ions. These speedy ions, which are electrically charged hydrogen atoms, provide much of the self-heating ability of the reactor as they collide with other ions. But they can also quickly escape the powerful magnetic fields used to confine them and overheat the walls of the containme...
  • Taking new angle to enable more efficient, compact fusion power plants
    Researchers have demonstrated a new approach for injecting microwaves into a fusion plasma that doubles the efficiency of a critical technique that could have major implications for future fusion reactors. The results show that launching the microwaves into the plasma via a novel geometry delivers substantial improvements in the plasma current drive.
  • Taking a new tangent to control pesky waves in fusion plasmas
    Fusion combines light elements in the form of plasma -- the hot, charged state of matter composed of free electrons and atomic nuclei -- to generate massive amounts of energy. One of the ways that scientists help heat the plasma is by injecting beams of energetic particles into tokamaks to provide enough energy for plasma particles to overcome mutual repulsion and fuse together...
  • Fusion: Fuel injection helps reduce magnetic island instabilities
    Fusion is a non-carbon-based process for energy production, where lighter atoms fuse into heavier ones. Fusion reactors operate by confining a 'soup' of charged particles, known as a plasma, within powerful magnetic fields. But these magnetic fields must contain the plasma long enough that it can be heated to extreme temperatures -- hotter than the sun -- where fusion reactions...
  • Remarkable story of shock wave physics in post-World War II America
    Physicists predicted the Hubble Space Telescope would see a rising vapor plume as the Shoemaker-Levy 9 comet crashed into the far side of Jupiter in 1994. And sure enough, the plume produced by the impact matched their computational analysis.
  • A new stable form of plutonium discovered
    Scientists have found a new compound of plutonium with an unexpected, pentavalent oxidation state. This new phase of plutonium is solid and stable, and may be a transient phase in radioactive waste repositories.
  • Distribution of highly radioactive microparticles in Fukushima revealed
    New method allows scientists to create a quantitative map of radioactive cesium-rich microparticle distribution in soils collected around the damaged Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant Nuclear Power Plant (FDNPP). This could help inform clean-up efforts in Fuksuhima region.
