  • How cosmic events give insight into fundamental properties of matter
    The option to measure the gravitational waves of two merging neutron stars has offered the chance to answer some of the fundamental questions about the structure of matter. At the extremely high temperatures and densities in the merger scientists conjecture a phase-transition where neutrons dissolve into their constituents: quarks and gluons.
  • Puzzling sizes of extremely light calcium isotopes
    Researchers have measured for the first time the nuclei of three proton-rich calcium isotopes.
  • New measurements of exotic form of magnesium suggest surprising shape-shift
    An international team led by scientists at the Department of Energy's Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) has reproduced an exotic form of magnesium, known as magnesium-40, and gleaned new and surprising clues about its nuclear structure.
  • Quantum sensors providing magnetic resonance with unprecedented sensitivity
    Scientists have produced a series of protocols for quantum sensors that could allow images to be obtained by means of the nuclear magnetic resonance of single biomolecules using a minimal amount of radiation.
  • Quantum structure of buckyballs
    Researchers have measured hundreds of individual quantum energy levels in the buckyball, a spherical cage of 60 carbon atoms. It's the largest molecule that has ever been analyzed at this level of experimental detail in the history of quantum mechanics. Fully understanding and controlling this molecule's quantum details could lead to new scientific fields and applications, such...
  • Fast action: Novel device may rapidly control plasma disruptions in a fusion facility
    Feature describes prototype of new device that mitigates disruption of fusion plasmas faster than the most developed techniques today.
  • Enhanced NMR reveals chemical structures in a fraction of the time
    Researchers have developed a way to dramatically enhance the sensitivity of nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy (NMR), a technique used to study the structure and composition of many kinds of molecules, including proteins linked to Alzheimer's and other diseases.
  • Fiery sighting: A new physics of eruptions that damage fusion experiments
    Sudden bursts of heat that can damage the inner walls of tokamak fusion experiments are a hurdle that operators of the facilities must overcome. Such bursts, called 'edge localized modes (ELMs),' occur in doughnut-shaped tokamak devices that house the hot, charged plasma that is used to replicate on Earth the power that drives the sun and other stars. Now researchers have direc...
  • Scientists discover a process that stabilizes fusion plasmas
    New research describes a newly discovered stabilizing effect of an underappreciated 1983 finding that variations in plasma temperature can influence the growth of magnetic islands that lead to disruption of fusion plasmas.
  • Precision experiment first to isolate, measure weak force between protons, neutrons
    A team of scientists has for the first time measured the elusive weak interaction between protons and neutrons in the nucleus of an atom. They had chosen the simplest nucleus consisting of one neutron and one proton for the study. Through a unique neutron experiment, experimental physicists resolved the weak force between the particles at the atom's core, predicted in the Stand...
  • The coming of age of plasma physics
    The story of the generation of physicists involved in the development of a sustainable energy source, controlled fusion, using a method called magnetic confinement.
  • Proton scattering reveals the secrets of strongly-correlated proton-neutron pairs in atomic nuclei
    An international research collaboration has reported the first experimental evidence that the strongly correlated proton-neutron pairs found in an atomic depend on nuclear structure. The experiment, conducted on a new beam line at the Osaka cyclotron facility, demonstrated the dominance of tensor interactions in the neutron pickup reaction. It is hoped that the findings will im...
  • System monitors radiation damage to materials in real-time
    A new system allows detailed real-time observations of how materials are affected by a high-radiation environment. The system could accelerate the development of better materials for nuclear plants.
  • Tangled magnetic fields power cosmic particle accelerators
    Magnetic field lines tangled like spaghetti in a bowl might be behind the most powerful particle accelerators in the universe. That's the result of a new computational study that simulated particle emissions from distant active galaxies.
  • 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.

Atomic energy technology, politics, and perceptions from a nuclear energy insider who served as a US nuclear submarine engineer officer
  • Atomic Show #265 – Atomic Optimism. Under-appreciated opportunities in sight.
    On Sunday, Feb 17, I realized that I was feeling extraordinarily good about the future of atomic energy, the future of clean energy production, and the future prosperity of the world that my grandchildren are going to inhabit. I immediately composed and sent an invitation to some atomic colleagues to join me in a conversation. […] The post Atomic Show #265 – Atomic...
  • 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 […] The post Acting EPA administr...
  • 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 […] The post ML-1 Mobile Power System: React...

  • 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 [...
