Where to put nuclear waste?
Researchers in Finland have found that acceptance of the site of a spent nuclear fuel repository can depend on gender and economic background. View News Article (2012-06-20)

Nuclear waste requires cradle-to-grave strategy
After Fukushima, it is now imperative to redefine what makes a successful nuclear power program - from cradle to grave. If nuclear waste management is not thought out from the beginning, the public in many countries will reject nuclear power as an energy choice, according to research that appears today in the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists, published by SAGE. View News Article (2011-07-01)

Experts call for local and regional control of sites for radioactive waste
The withdrawal of Nevada's Yucca Mountain as a potential nuclear waste repository has reopened the debate over how and where to dispose of spent nuclear fuel and high-level nuclear waste. View News Article (2009-07-10)

After the Big Bang: Project Explores Seconds that Shaped the Universe
Kent State faculty and graduate students are among a team of physicists who recreated the material essence of the universe as it would have been mere microseconds after the Big Bang—a quark-gluon plasma. View News Article (2006-07-13)

EU nuclear research key in the fight against cancer and illegal nuclear trafficking
A key player in the fight against cancer and illegal nuclear trafficking, the European Commission Joint Research Centre's Institute for Transuranium Elements (ITU) at Karlsruhe, Germany, today celebrates its 40th Anniversary. The ITU manages projects for nuclear research in fields such as radioactive waste management, nuclear forensics, radiation protection, detecting radiation in the... View News Article (2003-10-17)

Lasers spark new paths in radio-isotope transmutation - Scientific breakthrough in the transmutation of isotopes
Collaboration between the European Commission's Joint Research Centre (JRC) DG, the University of Jena (Germany), the University of Strathclyde (UK), Imperial College (UK), and the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory (UK) has led to the transmutation of long-lived radioactive iodine-129 into short-lived iodine-128 using very high intensity laser radiation. Until recently, transmutation could only be... View News Article (2003-08-29)
