russia’s full-scale attack on Ukraine, which was accompanied by numerous acts of nuclear terrorism, set the reconditions for a review of the main areas of international cooperation in the nuclear field. The issue of securing mankind from the reckless actions of the aggressor, by combining forces and finding a single correct solution to contain nuclear […]

Net Energy Gain Firstly Resulting from Nuclear Fusion Reaction

On 13 December, the U.S. Department of Energy and DOE’s National Nuclear Security Administration announced achieving a nuclear fusion reaction resulting in a net energy gain at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. LLNL’s experiment surpassed the fusion threshold by delivering 2.05 megajoules (MJ) of energy to the target, resulting in 3.15 MJ of fusion energy output, […]

3D Printing Can Help Produce Radiopharmaceuticals

The European patent was granted to scientists from the National Centre for Nuclear Research in Poland for manufacturing uranium targets using 3D printing. This will contribute to the production of molybdenum-99 radioisotope needed for current diagnostics. The patent application was financially supported by the Foundation for Polish Science, and the project itself was implemented by […]
