Nuclear shapes

nuclear parameters such as the energy of the first excited state and its excitation probability. For example, the large excita­ tion probability for the first excited 2+ state found for nS indicates that ... of nuclear structure studies from I~Pd to Il~Pd [ref. 6]. Shape coexistence phenomenon (the existence of two stable shapes at the same excitation energy) can inform us upon the interplay between

Betavoltaic device in por-SiC/Si C-Nuclear Energy Converter

The miniature and low-power devices with long service life in hard operating conditions like the Carbon-14 beta-decay energy converters indeed as eternal resource for integrated MEMS and NEMS are ... Energy Converter device Unlike most nuclear power sources, which use nuclear radiation to generate heat, which then is used to generate electricity (thermoelectric and thermionic sources), betavoltaics

On the cointegration and causality between oil market, nuclear energy consumption, and economic growth: evidence from developed countries

This study uses Johansen cointegration technique to examine both the equilibrium relationship and the causality between oil consumption, nuclear energy consumption, oil price and economic growth. To ... . The results point that energy consumption (i.e., oil or nuclear) has either a predictive power for economic growth, or feedback impact with real GDP growth in all countries. Results suggest that oil

Lessons Learned in Applying Accelerometers to Nuclear Effects Testing

Exoatmospheric nuclear effects, such as those that would be encounter by reentry bodies, provide instantaneous (near zero-duration), impulsive loading of structures. Endoatmospheric nuclear effects ... with nuclear explosions, 60 to 70 percent of this total radiation may be in the form of x-rays. In a lower altitude detonation, the atmosphere absorbs the low energy portion of these x-rays by conversion

To ... point that energy consumption (i.e., oil or nuclear) has either a predictive power for economic growth, or feedback impact with real GDP growth in all countries. Results suggest that oil consumption is

Feedback control in magnetic nuclear fusion

for life itself. It is therefore not surprising that a challenge like that of producing energy from controlled thermonuclear fusion strongly relies on feedback control for its success. - The rf x-mod ... that one of the more ambitious scientific and technological challenges of mankind for this century, i.e. producing energy from controlled thermonuclear fusion, strongly relies on feedback control for its

Nuclear energy and Anthropocene

After a short introduction on the basic physical problems of the application of nuclear physics to unfortunate military scopes and to civil production of nuclear energy we will consider their ... locations. 1 Introduction Nuclear wastes Disposal The effects of nuclear energy in Anthropocene are relatively recent and can be due in principle both to fission and fusion. The military application of

A catalog of observed nuclear magnitudes of Jupiter family comets

A catalog of a sample of 105 Jupiter family (JF) comets (defined as those with Tisserand constants and orbital periods yr) is presented with our “best estimates” of their absolute nuclear magnitudes ... catalog of a sample of 105 Jupiter family (JF) comets (de ned as those with Tisserand constants T > 2 and orbital periods P < 20 yr) is presented with our best estimates" of their absolute nuclear

Environmental Justice as Scalar Parity: Lessons From Nuclear Waste Management

Discovery potential for directional Dark Matter detection with nuclear emulsions

Direct Dark Matter searches are nowadays one of the most fervid research topics with many experimental efforts devoted to the search for nuclear recoils induced by the scattering of Weakly ... energy spectra. New generation detectors capable of measuring the direction of nuclear recoils induced by WIMP elastic scatterings would provide an unambiguous identification of WIMPs as candidate for the

The 4-dimensional Langevin approach to low energy nuclear fission

We applied the four-dimensional Langevin approach to the description of fission of 235U by neutrons and calculated the dependence of the excitation energy of fission fragments on their mass number

A Reappraisal of Energy Supply and Demand in 2050

In this paper dealing with the medium term (2020) and long term (2050) world energy mix the author has attempted to present a single most likely scenario, contrary to the usual multiple scenario ... perceptions and desires, which will therefore play a key part in forging future energy trends. Whether or not we accept the risks involved in global warming, nuclear power and the use of individual transport

Constrained Regulatory Exit in Energy Law

In recent years, the federal government’s efforts to open up competitive electricity markets have transformed how we think about the regulation of energy. In many respects, the Federal Energy ... -Hughes challenge targeted the N.Y. Public Service Commission (NYPSC) Clean Energy Standard, which, among other things, compensates upstate merchant nuclear power plants for the social cost of carbon that
