Two remarkable pulsed-power machines used to test the nation's defenses against atomic weapons have surpassed milestones at Sandia National Laboratories: 4,000 firings, called 'shots,' on the Saturn accelerator and 9,000 shots on the HERMES III accelerator. Saturn – originally projected to last 5 to 10 years – began operating in 1987. Its major function has been to produce X-rays to test the effectiveness of countermeasures used to protect electronics and other materials...

Scientists at the Naval Research Laboratory Plasma Physics Division demonstrate significant progress in the efficiency and cost effectiveness of light ions in the fast ignition of fusion targets. Light ions such as lithium or carbon are easier to produce technologically and the ion beam properties can be manipulated and tailored best to suit the necessary requirements for fast ignition. The fast ignition concept has been conceived as an alternative to other approaches for nuclear fusion...

Key insight may help nuclear industry advance clean fusion power A new discovery about the dynamic impact of individual energetic particles into a solid surface improves our ability to predict surface stability or instability of materials under irradiation over time. The finding may lead to the design of improved structural materials for nuclear fission and fusion power plants, which must withstand constant irradiation over decades. It may also accelerate the advent of fusion power, which...

Researchers at the University of Warwick's Centre for Fusion Space and Astrophysics and the UK Atomic Energy Authority's Culham Centre for Fusion Energy may have found a way to channel the flux and fury of a nuclear fusion plasma into a means to help sustain the electric current needed to contain that very same fusion plasma. The researchers used large scale computer simulations to confirm a longstanding prediction by US researchers that high energy alpha particles born in fusion reactions...

More accurate simulations could lead to 'break-even' fusion in foreseeable future A new X-ray imaging capability has taken pictures of a critical instability at the heart of Sandia's huge Z accelerator. The effort may help remove a major impediment in the worldwide, multidecade, multibillion dollar effort to harness nuclear fusion to generate electrical power from sea water. "These are the first controlled measurements of the growth of magneto-Rayleigh-Taylor [MRT] instabilities" in fast...

Igor Yevgenyevich Tamm born in Vladivostok, Russia on July 8, 1895 was a Soviet physicist and mathematician. He studied at the University of Edinburgh in 1913-1914. He then switched to Moscow State University where he graduated in 1918. He developed an approximation method for many-body physics, in 1945. He worked with Andrei Dmitrievich Sakharov to create a tomohak system based on a toroidal magnetic thermonuclear reactor, in 1958. This led to the T-3 Soviet magnetic confinement...

humgruffin
  • A terrible or repulsive person.
Regarding the etymology of 'humgruffin,' the OED says (rather unhelpfully) that it's a 'made-up word.' We might guess that 'hum' comes from 'humbug' or possibly 'hum' meaning 'a disagreeable smell,' while 'gruffin' could be a combination of 'gruff' and 'griffin.'
