  • hydrogen
  • It is a design of a fusion nuclear reactor by laser ignition of 1000 MWe that uses as fuel hydrogen isotopes that can be extracted from water allowing us a significant saving in fuel. (pddnet.com)
  • As a result of the Project "Fusion Power", the Professor González Díez designed a prototype of fusion reactor by inertial confinement, of total conversion of material into energy, whose fusion chamber can adapt to the type of fuel that wishes to be used, specially deuterium-tritium, deuterium- deuterium or hydrogen-hydrogen. (pddnet.com)
  • power
  • A researcher at the Universidad politécnica de Madrid (UPM) has patented a nuclear fusion reactor by inertial confinement that, apart from be used to generate electric power in plants, can be applied to propel ships. (pddnet.com)
  • This invention is the result of a work carried out by the Professor José Luis González Díez from the Higher Technical School of Naval Engineering of the UPM, who has contributed to solve the problem of contamination risk associated with the generation of nuclear fission power. (pddnet.com)
  • This project has also led a design of a modular structure to realize coupling of various fusion reactors, what would allow us to maximize the power production solving the problem of the high current energy demand. (pddnet.com)
  • rare isotope
  • This paper provides a literature review on licensing fees for the production of other isotopes and our experience with an otherwise rare isotope, copper-67, which holds promise as a Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma therapy. (lesi.org)
  • Chalk River
  • Noting significant vulnerabilities in Canada's radioisotope technetium-99 supply (used to scan patients for cancer and heart ailments), following the May 2009 shutdown of the NRU reactor at Chalk River, the Canadian Government called on an expert panel in July 2009 to review and recommend options for securing supply and alternative production of Tc-99. (itnonline.com)
  • The Chalk River reactor is 52 years old and supplies up to 80 percent of the medical isotopes used in Canada and 40 percent of those needed globally. (itnonline.com)
  • The reactor facility in Chalk River, Ont. (cbc.ca)
  • meltdown
  • Radioactive iodine found by Dartmouth researchers in the local New Hampshire environment is a direct consequence of a nuclear reactor's explosion and meltdown half a world away, says Joshua Landis, a research associate in the Department of Earth Science. (sciencecodex.com)
  • The commission ordered the reactor to close on Nov. 18 over safety concerns about the emergency power system not being connected to cooling pumps, as required to prevent a meltdown during disasters such as earthquakes. (cbc.ca)
  • But some are wondering: can a worst-case scenario nuclear meltdown in Japan affect our food supply? (foxnews.com)
  • But, if the wind blows westward over Japan after a worst case scenario nuclear meltdown, the immediate concern would then be Japan's domestic food supply. (foxnews.com)
  • If a nuclear meltdown were to occur, experts say, radioactive fallout would release these isotopes - which could attach to dust particles and enter the atmosphere. (foxnews.com)
  • The severity of this contamination depends on the life of the radioactive isotopes that would be released if a meltdown were to occur. (foxnews.com)
  • As bad as is the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, the meltdown of a nuclear power plant would make that disaster minor in comparison. (ratical.org)
  • Given the systemic and human problems with nuclear power, many believe it is a matter of time before we have another nuclear plant meltdown. (ratical.org)
  • Fossil Fuels
  • This substantially reduces the volumes of fuel and waste of nuclear power compared to Fossil Fuels. (nuclearinfo.net)
  • Just as conventional power-stations generate electricity by harnessing the thermal energy released from burning fossil fuels , nuclear reactors convert the energy released by controlled nuclear fission into thermal energy for further conversion to mechanical or electrical forms. (wikipedia.org)
  • According to the World Health Organization (WHO), "Substituting small, properly contained volumes of nuclear waste for vast, dispersed amounts of toxic wastes from fossil fuels would produce so obvious an improvement in public health that it is astonishing that physicians have not already such demanded such a conversion. (mirznanii.com)
  • Before the advance of nuclear chemistry, electricity was mainly generated through the use of fossil fuels that produce noxious greenhouse gases (Dennis, 39). (mirznanii.com)
  • Due to all these negative points about fossil fuel use, less and less of fossil fuels and more nuclear power is used. (mirznanii.com)
  • diagnostic
  • As U.S. physicians face an impending crisis caused by lack of a crucial isotope used in many diagnostic procedures, a U.S. company said Wednesday that it had reached an agreement with the Polish nuclear energy agency to obtain the isotope from a reactor in that country. (latimes.com)
  • country's
  • The panel has recommended the Canadian government make an investment in linear accelerator (linac) technology to address the country's shrinking isotope supply. (itnonline.com)
  • It is quite possible to utilize Nuclear Power to provide the vast majority of an entire country's need for electricity. (nuclearinfo.net)
  • The European Union is urging member states to check Japanese food imports for radioactivity following the country's nuclear crisis. (foxnews.com)
  • shutdown
  • The extended shutdown of the reactor threatened a national and international health crisis,' he said at the start of his speech. (cbc.ca)
  • Petten
  • A second major reactor, in Petten, the Netherlands, will close Friday for four to six months of scheduled maintenance. (latimes.com)
  • In the Netherlands, there is currently a plan to build a new research reactor, Pallas, as the successor of the EC-owned High Flux Reactor in Petten. (laka.org)
  • Lithium
  • And this was in 1954, it's called the Castle Bravo explosion it was supposed to be about 5 mega tons but instead it ended up being 15 mega tons mainly because lithium 6 was used to make a solid lithium deutride fuel for the thermal nuclear reaction, they didn't think that the lithium 6 was going to participate in the reaction but it actually did. (brightstorm.com)
  • What are the isotopes of lithium? (reference.com)
  • Regulatory Commission
  • A Nuclear Regulatory Commission member plans to visit Indian Point next week, and federal elected officials are urging him to use the tour to conduct a thorough evaluation of the plants' emergency evacuation and response plans. (ipsecinfo.org)
