APS physicists release nuclear downsizing report
The American Physical Society (APS), the world's leading organization of physicists, has released a report identifying technical steps that will help the U.S. achieve its goals to downsize the nuclear arsenal, prevent the spread of atomic bombs and keep the stockpile safe and secure.  View News Article (2010-02-19)

Eliminating the threat of nuclear arms
President Barack Obama has made his intention of eliminating all nuclear weapons a tenet of his administration's foreign policy. Professor Sidney Drell, a US theoretical physicist and arms-control expert, explains in February's Physics World what Obama needs to do to make that honourable intention a reality. View News Article (2009-02-04)

Scientists demonstrate pear shaped atomic nuclei
Scientists at the University of Liverpool have shown that some atomic nuclei can assume the shape of a pear which contributes to our understanding of nuclear structure and the underlying fundamental interactions. View News Article (2013-05-09)

Hypoxia-inducible factor-1 dependent nuclear entry of factor inhibiting HIF-1
The role of FIH-1 in the regulation of HIF-1 transcriptional activity has been known for some time, but is limited to the understanding that in the nucleus FIH-1 hydrolyzes asparagine at the C-terminus of HIF-1α to prevent the interaction between HIF-1α and associated cofactors, resulting in suppressed activation of HIF-1. FIH-1 is a cytoplasmic protein. View News Article (2015-11-02)

Diamond detectors - The Physics Congress 2002
Diamond has an extremely high resilience to radiation - three orders of magnitude higher than silicon - making it an ideal material for detectors that monitor radioactive emissions inside the hostile environments found in nuclear energy plants. But because of the high price of real diamond, synthetic diamond is needed. The latest developments in making and improving this synthetic diamond are... View News Article (2002-04-02)

Probability of contamination from severe nuclear reactor accidents is higher than expected
Catastrophic nuclear accidents such as the core meltdowns in Chernobyl and Fukushima are more likely to happen than previously assumed. View News Article (2012-05-23)

Argonne scientists develop way to predict properties of light nuclei
Scientists have spent 70 years trying to predict the properties of nuclei, but have had to settle for approximate models because computational techniques were not equal to the task. View News Article (2008-05-22)

Researchers solve mystery of how nuclear pores duplicate before cell division
Researchers have long wondered how nuclear pores - the all-important channels that control the flow of information in and out of a cell's nucleus - double in number to prepare for the split to come when a cell divides. View News Article (2006-04-21)

Nuclear physicists examine oxygen's limits
Physicists at the National Superconducting Cyclotron Laboratory (NSCL) at Michigan State University have made a unique measurement of an exotic oxygen nucleus, leading scientists one step closer to deciphering the behavior of the element at its limits of existence. View News Article (2007-09-14)
