  • On the trail of the Higgs Boson
    In a quest to understand the production mechanisms for the Higgs Boson, a researcher has investigated the traces of a rare process, called ttH, in which the Higgs Boson is produced in association with a pair of elementary particles referred to as top quarks.
  • A step closer to fusion energy
    Harnessing nuclear fusion is a step closer after researchers showed that using two types of imaging can help them assess the safety and reliability of parts used in a fusion energy device.
  • Innate 'fingerprint' could detect tampered steel parts
    Researchers using magnetic signals have found unique 'fingerprints' on steel, which could help to verify weapons treaties and reduce the use of counterfeit bolts in the construction industry.
  • Photonic radiation sensors survive huge doses undamaged
    Researchers have published landmark test results that suggest a promising class of sensors can be used in high-radiation environments and to advance important medical, industrial and research applications.
  • Treated superalloys demonstrate unprecedented heat resistance
    Researchers have discovered how to make 'superalloys' even more super, extending useful life by thousands of hours. The discovery could improve materials performance for electrical generators and nuclear reactors.
  • A new lead on a 50-year-old radiation damage mystery
    For half a century, researchers have seen loops of displaced atoms appearing inside nuclear reactor steel after exposure to radiation, but no one could work out how.
  • Doubly-excited electrons reach new energy states
    Scientists have now characterized the higher energy levels reached by electrons in resonance in three-particle systems, which are too complex to be described using simple equations. This theoretical model is intended to offer guidance for experimentalists interested in observing these resonant structures in positronium ions.
  • Levitating particles could lift nuclear detective work
    Laser-based 'optical tweezers' could levitate uranium and plutonium particles, thus allowing the measurement of nuclear recoil during radioactive decay. This technique provides a new method for conducting the radioactive particle analysis essential to nuclear forensics
  • Peak performance: New stellarator experiments show promising results
    Imagine building a machine so advanced and precise you need a supercomputer to help design it. That's exactly what scientists and engineers in Germany did when building the Wendelstein 7-X experiment. The device is a type of fusion device called a stellarator.
  • Taming plasmas: Improving fusion using microwaves
    We all know microwaves are good for cooking popcorn, but scientists have recently shown they can also prevent dangerous waves in plasmas and help produce clean, nearly limitless energy with fusion. Fusion takes place when fast moving atomic particles slam into each other and stick together. The particles need to be so hot that atoms break down, leaving a gas of charged particle...
  • Inside job: A new technique to cool a fusion reactor
    Fusion offers the potential of near limitless energy by heating a gas trapped in a magnetic field to incredibly high temperatures where atoms are so energetic that they fuse together when they collide. But if that hot gas, called a plasma, breaks free from the magnetic field, it must be safely put back in place to avoid damaging the fusion device -- this problem has been one of...
  • A faster, cheaper path to fusion energy
    Scientists are working to dramatically speed up the development of fusion energy in an effort to deliver power to the electric grid soon enough to help mitigate impacts of climate change. The arrival of a breakthrough technology -- high-temperature superconductors, which can be used to build magnets that produce stronger magnetic fields than previously possible -- could help th...
  • New quantum criticality discovered in superconductivity
    Using solid state nuclear magnetic resonance (ssNMR) techniques, scientists have discovered a new quantum criticality in a superconducting material, leading to a greater understanding of the link between magnetism and unconventional superconductivity.
  • A first 'snapshot' of the complete spectrum of neutrinos emitted by the sun
    About 99 percent of the sun's energy emitted as neutrinos is produced through nuclear reaction sequences initiated by proton-proton (pp) fusion in which hydrogen is converted into helium, say scientists.
  • 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.

One of the founders, Dr. Per Peterson, is a long established UCB professor with […] The post Kairos – Developing advanc...
  • 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 […] The post Turning nu...

  • U.S. coal consumption in 2018 expected to be the lowest in 39 years
    EIA expects total U.S. coal consumption in 2018 to fall to 691 million short tons (MMst), a 4% decline from 2017 and the lowest level since 1979. U.S. coal consumption has been falling since its peak in 2007, and EIA forecasts that 2018 coal consumption will be 437 MMst (44%) lower than 2007 levels, mainly driven by declines in coal use in the electric power sector.
  • Pipeline constraints, refinery maintenance push Western Canadian crude oil prices lower
    Planned maintenance at several large refineries in the Midwest has decreased the volume of crude oil processed in the region, which has resulted in lower prices of Western Canadian Select (WCS), a crude oil typically processed in the Midwest. WCS crude oil is typically priced lower than other crude oils because of differences in crude oil quality, but increasing production of W...
