Dec. 21, 2015 — In proof-of-principle experiments, scientists used a laser-driven X-ray source to produce an image of a uranium disk no bigger than a stack of three nickels, hidden between 3-inch steel ... read more

Radioactive Matter Migrates More Quickly Through Fractured Carbonate Rock

Dec. 18, 2015 — A new study has determined the impact of intrinsic colloid formation on increased migration of leaked radioactive materials in the environment. Colloids are microscopic inorganic or organic solids ... read more

New Model More Accurately Tracks Gases for Underground Nuclear Explosion Detection

Dec. 17, 2015 — Scientists have developed a new, more thorough method for detecting underground nuclear explosions (UNEs) by coupling two fundamental elements -- seismic models with gas-flow models -- to create a ... read more

Dec. 17, 2015 — An ultra-high-resolution technique used for the first time to study polymer fibers that trap uranium in seawater may cause researchers to rethink the best methods to harvest this potential fuel for ... read more

Combined Imaging Modalities May Change Cancer Management

Dec. 10, 2015 — PET/CT and whole-body MRI detect extraskeletal disease that may change the management of high-risk breast and prostate cancer patients, according to a recent study. In addition, the combined ... read more

Origin of Heavy Elements in the Universe Uncovered

Dec. 8, 2015 — A team of scientists suggests a solution to the Galactic radioactive plutonium puzzle. All the Plutonium used on Earth is artificially produced in nuclear reactors. Still, it turns out that it is ... read more

Dec. 1, 2015 — Physicists are proposing a new way to process nuclear waste that uses a plasma-based centrifuge. Known as plasma mass filtering, the new mass separation techniques would supplement chemical ... read more
