Latest Nuclear fusion Stories
A US Navy laboratory has produced â€œsignificantâ€ evidence of the controversial energy source known as cold fusion.
Researchers are reporting compelling new scientific evidence for the existence of low-energy nuclear reactions (LENR), the process once called "cold fusion" that may promise a new source of energy.
Scientists in California say they're trying to replicate the power of the sun by firing laser beams at a tiny pellet of hydrogen. Physicists at the National Ignition Facility in Livermore say the nuclear fusion experiments may offer the world a clean source of energy, The Times of London reported Sunday. The hydrogen pellet will be hit with 192 laser beams capable of generating 500 trillion watts -- 1,000 times the power of the U.S.
Technique may provide data for NIF nuclear fusion effort .
Physicists at The University of Texas at Austin have designed a new system that, when fully developed, would use fusion to eliminate most of the transuranic waste produced by nuclear power plants.
Research carried out at MIT's Alcator C-Mod fusion reactor may have brought the promise of fusion as a future power source a bit closer to reality, though scientists caution that a practical fusion powerplant is still decades away.
U.S. scientists say they've created a new cast stainless steel that is 70 percent stronger than comparable steels. Researchers at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory and the U.S.
Research that has provided a deeper understanding into the center of planets could also provide the way forward in the world's quest for cleaner energy.
Rusi P. Taleyarkhan, a Purdue University scientist is suing two other faculty members for alleged defamation.
Europe is looking into an alternative fusion project that would seek abundant clean energy using a colossal laser the size of a football stadium.
Solar Radiation -- Solar radiation is radiant energy emitted by the sun due to nuclear fusion reactions. Fusion is the process whereby stars produce huge quantities of energy from the fusion of hydrogen or helium, in one of the most efficient processes of energy generation. The radiation referred to is usually electromagnetic energy, particularly infrared radiation, visible light, and ultraviolet. Some stars are known to emit radiation of other wavelengths. Solar neutrinos are a...
