This article describes innovative liquid lithium loop to address needs of future fusion power plants.
Central predictions by GSI scientists on the formation of heavy elements such as gold and platinum in the universe have now been observed astrophysically. For the first time gravitational waves of merging neutron stars were detected. This also puts further focus on the future accelerator facility FAIR, as conditions for further research on neutron stars can be simulated there.
Rochester Institute of Technology played a significant role in the breakthrough discovery of colliding neutron stars, cosmic collision detected in gravitational waves and in light. "We can probably account for all the gold that has ever been made," said Richard O'Shaughnessy from RIT's Center for Computational Relativity and Gravitation. "We know how often neutron stars merge and can predict how much of the radioactive material they eject. We can predict how much gold they make."
Alerted by the first-ever gravitational waves caused by two neutron stars merging, UCSB astronomers detect the resulting optical flash
This article describes cross-correlation of turbulence in tokamaks.
Researchers have modeled the actions of electrons under extreme temperatures and densities, such as those found within planets and stars.
A new method for capturing radioactive waste from nuclear power plants is cheaper and more effective than current methods, a potential boon for the energy industry, according to new research published in the journal Nature Communications.
The US Army Research Laboratory and its partners have made a breakthrough in understanding the structure of entanglement in quantum systems with long-range interactions.
A new article describes a simulated prediction of divertor heat flux that ITER will be able to tolerate.
An MIT team has determined formulas to guide development of a promising new high-tech material, composed of insulating metal oxides known as alkaline-earth-metal binary oxides, that could lead to better computer memory chips, refrigeration systems, and other devices.
