More than ever before, radiation is a part of our modern daily lives. We own radiation-emitting phones, regularly get diagnostic x-rays, such as mammograms, and submit to full-body security scans at airports. We worry and debate about the proliferation of nuclear weapons and the safety of nuclear power plants. But...
It gives a clear introduction to fission weapons at the level of an upper-year undergraduate physics student by examining the details of nuclear reactions, their energy release, analytic and numerical models of the fission process, how critical masses can be estimated, how fissile materials are produced, and what factors complicate...
Highlighting the latest developments in the field, Nuclear and Radiochemistry begins by covering the theory and fundamentals, followed by chapters devoted to specific topics, such as nuclear energy and reactors, radiotracers, and radionuclides in the life sciences.
In this book, a physicist and expert on the history of the Manhattan Project clearly explains the underlying science behind the development of the atomic bomb, including how atomic bombs work, the Hiroshima and Nagasaki missions, and the legacy of the Project.
Set against the backdrop of the Fukushima nuclear plant disaster, this book explores radiation safety. The author offers important information on radioactive substances arising from nuclear power plants and weapons, including their effects on living organisms.
This book surveys current methods in nuclear based hydrogen production, including electrolysis and thermochemical water splitting by the copper-chlorine and sulphur-based cycles. Covers cycle configurations, equipment design, modeling, implementation and more.
This second edition of the well-established bestseller is completely updated and revised to include the latest developments, with two new chapters on applications. A comprehensive and clear overview of fundamental aspects, principles of instrumentation and practical applications.
This book captures the proceedings from the third in a series of meetings addressing the extensive research and analysis performed to ensure the continuing safe performance of the graphite cores.
