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.
  • Seeing clearly: Revised computer code accurately models an instability in fusion plasmas
    Subatomic particles zip around fusion machines known as tokamaks and sometimes merge, releasing large amounts of energy. Now, physicists have confirmed that an updated computer code could help to predict and ultimately prevent the particles from leaking from the magnetic fields confining them.
  • Using building materials to monitor for high enriched uranium
    A new article details how small samples of ubiquitous building materials, such as tile or brick, can be used to test whether a facility has ever stored high enriched uranium, which can be used to create nuclear weapons. The technique could serve as a valuable forensic tool for national or international efforts related to nuclear nonproliferation and security.
  • New way to measure the stability of next-generation magnetic fusion devices

    Researchers have demonstrated a technique that allows them to track microscopic changes in metals or other materials in real time even when the materials are exposed to extreme heat and loads for an extended period of time -- a phenomenon known as 'creep.' The technique will expedite efforts to develop and characterize materials for use in extreme environments, such as nuclear ...
  • Thought experiment: Switzerland without fossil fuels. Can that succeed?
    A new study shows how much work still lies ahead of us if Switzerland is to do without fossil fuels in the future. There are two possible solutions: storing large amounts of energy in summer and limiting our demand in winter, or generating energy in the 'sunny south' or 'windy north' of the world and transporting it here.
  • Tiny granules can help bring clean and abundant fusion power to Earth
    Physicists have concluded that injecting tiny beryllium pellets into ITER could help stabilize the plasma that fuels fusion reactions.
