  • Tracking major sources of energy loss in compact fusion facilities
    Analysis of energy loss in low-aspect ratio tokamaks opens a new chapter in the development of predictions of transport in such facilities.
  • Separation anxiety no more: A faster technique to purify elements
    Researchers have developed a new chemical separation method that is vastly more efficient than conventional processes, opening the door to faster discovery of new elements, easier nuclear fuel reprocessing, and, most tantalizing, a better way to attain actinium-225, a promising therapeutic isotope for cancer treatment.
  • Experiments and calculations allow examination of boron's complicated dance
    In a study that combines groundbreaking experimental work and theoretical calculations, researchers have determined the nuclear geometry of two isotopes of boron. The result could help open a path to precise calculations of the structure of other nuclei that scientists could experimentally validate.
  • Exotic matter uncovered in the sun's atmosphere
    Scientists have announced a major new finding about how matter behaves in the extreme conditions of the sun's atmosphere. Their work has shed new light on the exotic but poorly understood 'fourth state of matter,' known as plasma, which could hold the key to developing safe, clean and efficient nuclear energy generators on Earth.
  • New method could shed light on workers' historical radiation exposure
    Researchers in the UK have developed a new method for evaluating plutonium workers' historical internal radiation exposure. They focused their efforts on workers employed at the start of plutonium operations at the Sellafield (formerly Windscale) nuclear reprocessing facility in the UK.
  • Machine learning speeds modeling of experiments aimed at capturing fusion energy on Earth
    Machine learning can help bring to Earth the clean fusion energy that lights the sun and stars. Researchers are using this form of artificial intelligence to create a model for rapid control of plasma -- the state of matter composed of free electrons and atomic nuclei, or ions -- that fuels fusion reactions.
  • Bio-inspired material targets oceans' uranium stores for sustainable nuclear energy
    Scientists have demonstrated a new bio-inspired material for an eco-friendly and cost-effective approach to recovering uranium from seawater. The low-cost polymer adsorbent could help push past bottlenecks in the cost and efficiency of extracting uranium resources from oceans for sustainable energy production.
  • Radioactive carbon from nuclear bomb tests found in deep ocean trenches
    Radioactive carbon released into the atmosphere from 20th-century nuclear bomb tests has reached the deepest parts of the ocean, a new study finds. Crustaceans in deep ocean trenches have incorporated this 'bomb carbon' into the molecules that make up their bodies.
  • Behold the mayo: Experiments reveal 'instability threshold' of elastic-plastic material
    Scientist have succeeded in characterizing the interface between an elastic-plastic material and a light material under acceleration.
  • Public dread of nuclear power limits its use
    Nuclear power has been a part of the American energy portfolio since the 1950s, but for a number of reasons, the general public has long felt a significant dread about it.
  • Nuclear 'magic numbers' collapse beyond the doubly magic nickel 78
    Scientists have demonstrated that nickel 78, a neutron-rich 'doubly magic' isotope of nickel with 28 protons and 50 neutrons, still maintains a spherical shape that allows it to be relatively stable despite the large imbalance in the number of protons and neutrons. They also discovered a surprise, with the observations from the experiment suggesting that nickel 78 may be the li...
  • Searching for lost WWII-era uranium cubes from Germany
    Researchers are piecing together what exactly happened to hundreds of cubes of uranium from a secretive and ultimately failed effort to build a working nuclear reactor in Nazi Germany during World War II.
  • CEBAF turns on the charm
    The world's most advanced particle accelerator for investigating the quark structure of the atom's nucleus has just charmed physicists with a new capability. The production of charm quarks in J/psi particles by CEBAF at the Department of Energy's Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility confirms that the facility has expanded the realm of precision nuclear physics researc...
  • Artificial intelligence speeds efforts to develop clean, virtually limitless fusion energy
    Scientists are applying deep learning -- a powerful new version of the machine learning form of artificial intelligence -- to forecast sudden disruptions that can halt fusion reactions and damage the doughnut-shaped tokamaks that house the reactions.
  • Physicists improve understanding of heat and particle flow in the edge of a fusion device
    Physicists have discovered valuable information about how plasma flows at the edge inside doughnut-shaped fusion devices. The findings mark an encouraging sign for the development of machines to produce fusion energy for generating electricity without creating long-term hazardous waste.

  • Project Dilithium – Part II. Enabling technologies
    Building mobile nuclear power plants will be a challenge, but successfully meeting the challenges could alter the future trajectory of the energy and fuels supply industry. That is one of the largest and most consequential sectors of our modern, mobile, industrialized economy. There are no guarantees, but compared to many research and development projects, Project […]
  • Why was H. J. Muller an effective tool in effort to exaggerate danger of radiation?
    In 1945, H. J. Muller was in deep financial difficulty. He had burned many bridges during his career. He had a young wife, a two year old daughter, and a notice in hand that he would be losing his job. He was 56 years old and had not accumulated any savings. He had moved around […]
  • Project Dilithium – Boldly going back to a place our ancestors visited and prematurely abandoned
    In January 2019, the Strategic Capabilities Office (SCO) of the U.S. Department of Defense officially informed the world that it was interested in learning more about small, mobile, nuclear generators. The SCO said it wanted to find out if there was technology available that could supply a forward operating base with abundant, emission-free electricity for […]
  • Atomic Show #266 – Seeing the Light about atomic energy potential
    Facing the immense threat of climate change, the need to power several billion more people and the continuing reluctance to use the most powerful tool available, Scott L. Montgomery and Thomas Graham Jr. realized that there was an information and perception gap about nuclear energy of roughly equivalent magnitudes. Their desire to help fill the […]

I immediately composed and sent an invitation to some atomic colleagues to join me in a conversation. […]
  • 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. I’m pretty sure those obits have been premature in declaring the subject to be dead. Last week, I attended the 6th Annual Advanced Reactor Summit and Technology Showcase. [&hellip...
  • Acting EPA administrator appoints Dr. Brant Ulsh to head radiation advisory council
    Sometimes, there are benefits to breaking things. It’s often the only way to eliminate barriers and walls that prevent progress. The process can create dust and debris that must be cleaned up to allow erection of a solid, stable path, but without the initial sledgehammer attack, nothing gets done. For more than 20 years, I’ve […]
  • ML-1 Mobile Power System: Reactor in a Box
    This is a modest update of an article first published in November 1996. DOD’s recent issuance of an RFI for mobile, modest power output atomic power systems shows that the challenges that were clearly described in 1963 have not been addressed – yet. Now is a good time to start addressing them. The ML-1 experimental […]

  • Turning nuclear into a fuel dominated business
    Under our current energy paradigm, nuclear power has the reputation of needing enormous up-front capital investments. Once those investments have been made and the plants are complete, the payoff is that they have low recurring fuel costs. Just the opposite is said of simple cycle natural gas fired combustion turbines. They require a small capital […]
