Japan's growing plutonium stockpile fuels fears
PHYS.ORG Japan has amassed enough plutonium to make 6,000 atomic bombs as part of a programme to fuel its nuclear plants, but concern is growing that the stockpile is vulnerable to terrorists and natural disasters. 1 day
Theorists publish highest-precision prediction of muon magnetic anomaly
PHYS.ORG Theoretical physicists at the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE's) Brookhaven National Laboratory and their collaborators have just released the most precise prediction of how subatomic particles called muons—heavy cousins of electrons—"wobble" off... 5 days
Can ultrashort electron flashes help harvest nuclear energy?
SCIENCE DAILY Physicists have now demonstrated experimentally the ability to coherently manipulate the wave function of a free electron down to the attosecond timescale (10-18 of a second). The team also developed a theory... 5 days
Can ultrashort electron flashes help harvest nuclear energy?
