  • Identifying an initial growth process of calcium phosphate
    Korean researchers identified the initial growth process of calcium phosphate, a key component of bones, using 'TOP-MEIS (Time-of-Flight Medium Energy Ion Scattering)'. The research findings differ from existing theories and are expected to be used in research into controlling the growth and characteristics of nanoparticles.
  • A new path to solving a longstanding fusion challenge
    A new design suggests a solution to a longstanding problem for next-generation fusion power plants: how to get rid of excess heat they generate.
  • Ultrafast optical fiber-based electron gun to reveal atomic motions
    A new method will enable researchers to directly observe and capture atomic motions at surfaces and interfaces in real time.
  • The cosmological lithium problem
    An international research group has tried to find a solution to one of the unknowns in the current description of the Big Bang. Different nuclear reactions responsible for the creation and destruction of atomic nuclei in nucleosynthesis during the Big Bang are crucial in determining the primordial abundance of lithium, the third (and last) chemical element formed during the ver...
  • New concept to cool boiling surface may help prevent nuclear power plant accidents
    Scientists have demonstrated a novel concept that overcomes the tolerable heat limit or what's known as the critical heat flux (CHF). They have come up with a new method that increased the CHF by 10 percent compared to approaches used in the past.
  • Regional seismic data help locate September 2017 North Korean nuclear test
    The epicenter of the Sept. 3, 2017, nuclear test explosion in North Korea occurred about 3.6 kilometers northwest of the country's first nuclear test in October 2006, according to a new high-precision analysis of the explosion and its aftermath.
  • Tracking hydrogen movement using subatomic particles
    Scientists have developed a technique using a beam of subatomic particles called muons to track hydrogen movement in the solid magnesium hydride for the first time. The negative muon beam provided spectra that showed the local nuclear magnetic fields of hydrogens in magnesium hydride. This technique expands our ability to investigate hydrogen transfer in solid materials, which ...
  • Efficient generation of high-density plasma enabled by high magnetic field
    Scientists have demonstrated that it is possible to efficiently heat plasma by focusing a relativistic electron beam (REB) accelerated by a high-intensity short-pulse laser with the application of a magnetic field of 600 tesla (T), about 600 times greater than the magnetic energy of a neodymium magnet (the strongest permanent magnet).
  • North Korea's 2017 bomb test set off later earthquakes, new analysis finds
    Using newly refined analysis methods, scientists have discovered that a North Korean nuclear bomb test last fall set off aftershocks over a period of eight months. The shocks, which occurred on a previously unmapped nearby fault, are a window into both the physics of nuclear explosions, and how natural earthquakes can be triggered.
  • Neutrons produce first direct 3-D maps of water during cell membrane fusion
    New 3-D maps of water distribution during cellular membrane fusion are accelerating scientific understanding of cell development, which could lead to new treatments for diseases associated with cell fusion.
  • Nuclear pasta, the hardest known substance in the universe
    A team of scientists has calculated the strength of the material deep inside the crust of neutron stars and found it to be the strongest known material in the universe.
  • New world record magnetic field
    Researchers have recorded the highest magnetic field ever achieved indoors -- a discovery that may open doors for materials science and fusion energy research.
  • Separating the sound from the noise in hot plasma fusion
    For fusion power plants to be effective, scientists must find a way to trigger the low-to-high confinement transition, associated with zonal flows of plasma. Theoretically, these consist of both a stationary flow and one that oscillates at the geodesic acoustic mode. For the first time, researchers have detected GAM at two different points simultaneously within the reactor. Thi...
  • Decoupling stress and corrosion to predict metal failure
    The research challenges the traditional viewpoint that the simultaneous presence of stress and a corrosive environment is a requirement for SCC and demonstrates that stress and corrosion can act independently.
  • Toward fusion power: Optimal magnetic fields for suppressing instabilities in tokamaks
    Scientists have developed a new method for reducing instabilities in fusion plasmas without triggering a fresh problem.

  • Documentary evidence that fossil fuel industry knew–by 1948–that it faced prospect that atomic energy would make it obsolete
    No industry cheerfully accepts the prospect that a newly developed technology could make it obsolete. Executives and investors earn much of their wealth by constantly evaluating potential threats to their business. They invest time, energy and resources in conceiving and implementing response or prevention plans. “Inside the Atom” is a 1948 vintage snapshot of the [...

  • U.S. nuclear plant outages increased in September after remaining low during summer
    Electric generation capacity losses as a result of U.S. nuclear plant outages were relatively low during much of the 2018 summer, averaging 2.8 gigawatts (GW) from June through August. This year’s seasonal maintenance and refueling cycle began earlier than in recent years, and total nuclear outages averaged 14.5 GW in the last week of September. The earlier-than-expected ...
