## Researchers simulate helium bubble behavior in fusion reactors

One of the most important challenges for successful commercialization of fusion power is the development of materials that can tolerate the extreme conditions of elevated temperatures and high particle flux of hydrogen isotopes and helium present in fusion reactors. Researchers designing the ITER international fusion reactor plan to use tungsten—one of the toughest materials known. A LANL team performed simulations to understand more fully how tungsten behaves in such harsh conditions, particula

## Nuclear structure studies of 24F

The structure of the $^{24}\mathrm{F}$ nucleus has been studied at GANIL using the $\ensuremath{\beta}$ decay of $^{24}\mathrm{O}$ and the in-beam $\ensuremath{\gamma}$-ray spectroscopy from the fragmentation of $^{27,28}\mathrm{Na},^{25,26}\mathrm{Ne},$ and $^{29,30}\mathrm{Mg}$ nuclei. Combining these complementary experimental techniques, the level scheme of $^{24}\mathrm{F}$ has been constructed up to $3.6\phantom{\rule{0.28em}{0ex}}\text{MeV}$ by means of particle-$\ensuremath{\gamma}$ and

## Chernobyl confinement arch joined together

The 'western' and 'eastern' halves of the arch of the New Safe Confinement (NSC) at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant in Ukraine have been joined together, SSE ChNPP, the state company tasked with managing the plant, said on 24 July.

## Oliver Sacks: My Periodic Table

As death nears, I am surrounding myself, as I did when I was a boy, with metals and minerals, little emblems of eternity.
tmertzi's insight:

This is a very touching read. Kudos Oliver Sacks

## Scientists Tested The Revigorator, A Vintage Uranium Health Product

During the 1920s and 1930s, people put radium on their skin and in their cocktails. They put uranium in health tonics. And they drank water from The Revigorator, which was a pot lined with uranium. In 2009, scientists tested a Revigorator, to see what it actually did.
tmertzi's insight:

So, it was not radiation, it was arsenic and lead! Wow...

## Recoil-decay tagging spectroscopy of 162W

Excited states in the highly neutron-deficient nucleus $^{162}\mathrm{W}$ have been investigated via the $^{92}\mathrm{Mo}(^{78}\mathrm{Kr},{2\ensuremath{\alpha})}^{162}\mathrm{W}$ reaction. Prompt $\ensuremath{\gamma}$ rays were detected by the JUROGAM II high-purity germanium detector array and the recoiling fusion-evaporation products were separated by the recoil ion transport unit (RITU) gas-filled recoil separator and identified with the gamma recoil electron alpha tagging (GREAT) spectrome

## First observation of 59Ge

In an experiment at the A1900 spectrometer of the National Superconducting Cyclotron Laboratory at Michigan State University the new isotope $^{59}\mathrm{Ge}$ was identified and the cross section for production of the most neutron-deficient $^{59\ensuremath{-}62}\mathrm{Ge}$ isotopes in the fragmentation of a $^{78}\mathrm{Kr}$ beam at 150 MeV/nucleon measured. This experimental information is relevant for the hunt of new two-proton emitters in the region above the doubly-magic \$^{48}\mathrm{Ni

The neutron-deficient nuclei are my favorite!
