Special Algorithm Coupled with Commercial X-ray Scanners May Enable Detection of Small Amounts of Fissile Materials in Luggage WASHINGTON, April 15, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- According to the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) the greatest danger to nuclear security comes from terrorists acquiring sufficient quantities of plutonium or highly enriched uranium (HEU) to construct a crude nuclear explosive device. The IAEA also notes that most cases of illicit nuclear...

Californium Could Revolutionize Radioactive Waste Storage
2014-03-25 08:37:40

Florida State University Groundbreaking work by a team of chemists on a fringe element of the periodic table could change how the world stores radioactive waste and recycles fuel. The element is called californium — Cf if you're looking at the Periodic Table of Elements — and it's what Florida State Professor Thomas Albrecht-Schmitt, the lead researcher on the project, calls "wicked stuff." In carefully choreographed experiments, Albrecht-Schmitt and his colleagues found that...

Researchers Find Uranium In A Natural Wetland More Mobile Than Previously Assumed
2013-12-18 09:06:00

Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne Because they are known to mop up pollutants, artificial wetlands are considered to be an efficient strategy to contain waterborne uranium. But studying a natural wetland near a former uranium-mining site in the French region of Limousin, researchers have found that under certain circumstances, uranium can be partly remobilized into the surrounding water. In a recent publication in Nature Communications, they show how it becomes mobile again by...

Fermium is a synthetic, radioactive metallic element. It has the symbol Fm and atomic number 100. It is an element in the actinide series. It is named after nuclear physicist Enrico Fermi. Fermium became the eighth transuranic (having an atomic number greater than 92) element discovered. It was first discovered in 1952 by a team of scientists led by Albert Ghiorso. They found fermium-255 in debris of the first hydrogen bomb explosion from Operation Ivy. Fermium-255 was created when...

Einsteinium is a metallic synthetic element with the symbol Es and atomic number 99. It became the seventh transuranic (atomic number higher than 99) element produced. It was named for Albert Einstein. It is an element found within the actinoid series which includes Actinium. Though it has only been produced in small amounts, it has been accurately determined to be silver in coloration. Like all synthetic elements, einsteinium isotopes are highly radioactive and are extremely toxic. Besides...

Curium is a synthetic radioactive chemical element with the symbol Cm and atomic number 96. This transuranic (atomic number greater than 92) element of the actinide series is produced by bombarding plutonium with helium ions. Curium does not occur naturally. A few commercial applications utilize the production of curium, but someday it may be useful in other areas including radioisotope thermoelectric generators. Curium is silvery-white in color and is chemically reactive. It was named for...

Californium is a metallic chemical element. It has the symbol Cf and the atomic number 98. This is a radioactive transuranic (atomic number greater than 92) element. Californium is used for starting nuclear reactors, optimizing coal power plants, the treatment of cancer, and oil drilling. It was first produced by bombarding curium with helium ions. It was first synthesized in 1950 at UC Berkeley. Californium was the 6th element found with an atomic number higher than 92. It was named after...

Berkelium is a synthetic radioactive metallic element. It has the symbol Bk and the atomic number 97. It is an actinoid found in the actinide series (which includes actinium). Berkelium was first synthesized by bombarding americium with helium ions. It was named after the University of California, Berkeley. This was the fifth transuranic element to be synthesized. This silvery metal easily oxidizes in air at elevated temperatures and is readily dissolvable in mineral acids. Berkelium was...
