Using photochemistry to separate plutonium and uranium

A team of researchers at Los Alamos National Laboratory has developed a way to use photochemistry to separate plutonium and uranium—work that could make it easier to store nuclear waste. In their paper published in the ...

Research makes physics of glass formation clearer

The fragility of liquid—that is, how the fluidity of a liquid changes with temperature—has long been believed to be a key factor in understanding liquids and also how they form into glasses. However, a reliable way to ...
