Lasers Split the Atom
© 2000 Photodisc, Inc. Fission in action. The reactions that are best known for generating nuclear power and atomic blasts can now be initiated with laser light, allowing researchers to run new types of nuclear physics experiments.
Two research teams have used the most powerful lasers on Earth to create the first laser-induced nuclear reactions, including the fission of uranium. The results, reported in the 31 January PRL , were predicted by theorists ten years ago but were not possible with the most powerful lasers at the time. The experiments demonstrate that lasers can now be used to study nuclear physics and astrophysical plasmas without going to a major accelerator facility. They may also lead to new information on the behavior of plasmas in a fusion reactora power plant that creates energy the same way the sun does. "With these classes of lasers we're actually doing nuclear physics," says Thomas Cowan, leader of the University of California team at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, one of the groups to accomplish the feat. "You're able to do with lasers what you primarily only do with accelerators." Across the Atlantic, researchers achieved similar results at the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory in Oxfordshire, United Kingdom.

    Note: This is a side-excursion into the basics of nuclear energy Bear in mind that even without math, this can be a fairly difficult subject and that the discussion is rather lengthy.

The ideas from section S-7 are reviewed in what follows next. The rest of the section is a qualitative discussion of all key processes involved in the practical use nuclear energy.
A Review of Nuclear Structure
The way the Sun generates its energy helps understand the way a nuclear power station does so. The two processes are however quite different. Here some facts about the way protons and neutrons combine to form nuclei, as covered in section S-7 about the Sun:
  • helium
  • Unlike gravity or electrical forces, the nuclear force is effective only at very short distances. At greater distances, the protons repel each other because they are positively charged, and charges of the same kind repel. For that reason, the protons forming the nuclei of ordinary hydrogenfor instance, in a balloon filled with hydrogendo not combine to form helium (a process which also would require some to combine with electrons and become neutrons). They cannot get close enough for the nuclear force, which attracts them to each other, to become important! Only in the core of the Sun, under extreme pressure and temperature, can such a process take place.
  • Other small nuclei can similarly combine into bigger ones and release energy, but in combining such nuclei, the amount of energy released is much smaller. The reason is that while the process

    rews on nuclear submarines spend months at a time underwater and are totally dependent on the constant, reliable power output of a nuclear reactor. Similarly, some of NASA's long-distance space probes depend on nuclear power. Yet the once-bright promise of nuclear energy is today tarnished by associations with nuclear weapons, a few power station accidents, and concerns about wastes.

    Nuclear power poised for comeback
    Rising oil prices, fears about global warming play role
    By Dana Wilkie
    COPLEY NEWS SERVICE July 31, 2005
    SEAN M. HAFFEY / Union-Tribune The San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station is one of 103 operating U.S. nuclear reactors. The broad energy plan includes billions of federal dollars to jump-start production of nuclear reactors. The incentives, from tax breaks to loan guarantees, come at a time when soaring oil prices and increasing public concern about global warming have forced even some leading environmentalists to rethink their opposition to nuclear power as a cleaner, cheaper alternative to traditional fossil fuels. "Nuclear (power), in combination with renewables, is the only source of electrical energy that can replace coal and gas to a significant degree," said Greenpeace co-founder Patrick Moore, now chairman of Greenspirit Strategies of Canada, which helps companies develop environmentally friendly policies. "We need a lot more electricity in this country in the decades ahead," said Steve Kerekes, spokesman for the Nuclear Energy Institute, a trade group for nuclear utilities. "Nuclear (power) is not by itself the answer, but it's part of that diversity of (sources) that will fill the gap."

    Key Arguments/History
    At the end of the 1980s, the USSR Ministry of Energy considered the possibility of closing down the Rovno plants because there was a danger that subsidence of the chalk rock on which they were built would damage the foundations of the plants. The problem was partially solved by the filling of cavities under the reactors with concrete, but this continues to make trouble.

    Teacher Toolbox
    An Introduction
    Last year, a major manufacturing company in Seaside, California closed its operations. Four thousand jobs were lost and the once prosperous town of Seaside quickly slipped into recession. In an effort to revive the economy in Seaside, a group of concerned citizens has lobbied the Nuclear Regulatory Commission , and convinced them that Seaside would be an ideal location for California's next nuclear power plant. The citizens of Seaside have been left with two choices: Vote to accept the power plant and all of its benefits or reject the proposal because of the negative aspects of living with the danger of a nuclear power plant in their backyard.
    The Task
    The city council of Seaside has decided to gather a team of specialists to investigate the opening of the power plant. Each specialist will present their report at a town meeting. It has been decided that the team will consist of six members:
    • Standard Electric Board Member who wants to convince the town people that a power plant would be an economic boon in a time of recession.

    Nuclear Engineering
    U.S. Department of Energy
    DOE/NE-0071 Introduction
    In the early years of the United States space program, lightweight batteries, fuel cells, and solar modules provided electric power for space missions. As missions became more ambitious and complex, power needs increased and scientists investigated various options to meet these challenging power requirements. One of the options was nuclear energy. By the mid-1950's, research had begun in earnest on ways to use nuclear power in space. These efforts resulted in the first radioisotope thermoelectric generators (RTGs), which are nuclear power generators built specifically for space and special terrestrial uses. These RTGs convert the heat generated from the natural decay of their radioactive fuel into electricity. The low-power devices are designed to supplement a craft's primary non-nuclear power source, but as the technology progressed, they soon began shouldering many missions' entire power needs. Today, RTG-powered spacecraft are exploring the outer planets of the solar system and orbiting the sun and Earth. They have also landed on Mars and the moon. They provide the power that enables us to see and learn about even the farthermost objects in our solar system.

    Life cycle analysis of nuclear power stations. The energy costs are shown to be much higher than the nuclear industry claims.
    Nuclear Power: the Energy Balance
    Jan Willem Storm van Leeuwen and Philip Smith
    This is the home page of a throroughly revised version of a website first placed on the web in 2002. In this revision the presentation of the analysis of nuclear energy has been arranged in a more orderly fashion and we hope a more understandable form than the original. While the end results, summarized below, are quantitatively somewhat diffferent than in the original version (the most important changes are pointed out where they have been made in the texts of the different chapters), the qualitative conclusions are unchanged. They are: The production of electricity by nuclear reactors, as long as rich uranium ores are still available, leads to considerably less CO -emission than does the use of fossil fuels for the purpose. In the course of time, as the rich ores become exhausted and poorer and poorer ores are perforce used, continuing use of nuclear reactors for electricity generation will finally result in the production of more CO than if fossil fuels were to be burned directly. In this revision we have given, in Chapter 2, a complete, up-to-date overview of all of the known or presumed uranium ore bodies, and the amount of net energy that burning them would deliver. In our original website we had estimated that using these resources to exhaustion would provide only three years of electrical energy at the present world rate of electricity use. In this revision, this estimate has been raised to about four years, partly because the data on the reserves is much more complete than it was a few years ago.

    The sources told BBC News Tony Blair wanted a national debate on the issue. He would raise the issue when ministers responded to a climate change policy review in June or July, they said. The Tories say there should be new nuclear stations provided they meet cost and waste concerns but the Lib Dems oppose the idea. National debate Mr Blair has said his policy has not changed since the energy White Paper two years ago, which left nuclear power on the back burner. But a senior source told BBC News Mr Blair would raise the issue in June or July, when the government has to respond to its climate change policy review.
