reaction in the atmosphere has been theoretically expected [to be] triggered by such high energy radiation," one of the researchers, astrophysicist Teruaki Enoto from Kyoto University, explained in a (https://www.nature.com/news/lightning-makes-new-isotopes-1.23033) press release in the journal Nature.
A high-quality Gamma-beam generated from inverse Compton scattering off relativistic electron beams interacting with an intense laser pulse arouses interest in photonuclear
physics and nuclear astrophysics research, characterization of nuclear materials or radioactive waste and so on.
(9) The Photonuclear
Inspection and Threat Assessment System to detect SNM up to 1 km away, unlike other systems that operate at very close range.
In September 1950, Allen entered the University of Illinois for graduate training in nuclear physics and earned an MS in 1954, upon completing a thesis on high-energy photonuclear
Topics include development of the photonuclear
activation file, nuclear data for minor actinides, differential cross sections of complex particle emission reactions, Monte Carlo simulation of the fission fragments evaporation process, random matrix theory in statistical analysis of resonances, and nuclear data services.
The application of photonuclear
physics to nuclear waste is called Photodeactivation.
(3) Together with world-wide efforts, new methods to produce the [sup.99]Mo isotopes have been explored and proposed using Japanese accelerator facilities through photonuclear
reactions ([gamma],n), (4) neutron-induced reactions (n, 2n) (5) and (n,[gamma]), as well as proton-incident reactions (p, pn) and (p, 2n).
This section considers the Photonuclear
(151) Inspection and Threat Assessment System (PITAS), a project funded by DTRA and conducted by Idaho National Laboratory (INL).
(NSOL) is pioneering the application of photonuclear
physics for the treatment of nuclear waste and the safe, efficient generation of electricity.
" refers to a nuclear reaction caused by a photon, in this case fission of SNM induced by high- energy photons.
