Wed 18 Jun 2014 A company has licensed a Sandia National Laboratories technology that offers a way to make molybdenum-99, a key radioactive isotope needed for diagnostic imaging in nuclear medicine in the United States. Known as moly 99, it is currently made in aging nuclear reactors outside the USA. More

Tue 17 Jun 2014 Capturing green energy from deep in the Earth will bring competitive electricity and district heating. The heat to capture is known as geothermal energy, and is derived from two sources that lie far beneath our feet. About one third of it is heat that has been stored in the Earth's molten core since our planet was formed. The other two-thirds have their origin in the decay of radioactive isotopes in the Earth's crust. This process releases heat, which means that the temperature rises, metre by metre, the further we drill into the interior of the planet. More

Mon 19 May 2014. Radiation from early universe found key to answer major questions in physics. Astrophysicists have measured the minute gravitational distortions in polarized radiation from the early universe and discovered that these ancient microwaves can provide an important cosmological test of Einstein’s theory of general relativity. These measurements have the potential to narrow down the estimates for the mass of ghostly subatomic particles known as neutrinos. The radiation could even provide physicists with clues to another outstanding problem about our universe: how the invisible “dark matter” and “dark energy,” which has been undetectable through modern telescopes, may be distributed throughout the universe.

Sun 4 May 2014. Multilayer, microscale solar cells enable ultrahigh efficiency power generation. An advancemnet in materials science and device assembly will bypass many of the limitations of traditional photovoltaic technologies. The strategy involves high-speed, printing-based manipulation of thin, microscale solar cells and new interface materials to bond them into multilayer stacks. Quadruple-junction, four-terminal solar cells have individually measured efficiencies of 43.9 percent. More
