TPU and RAS professors: excess energy leading to reactor emergencies is accumulated within isotope atomic nuclei

    Press/Media: Research

    Description

    Professors of Tomsk Polytechnic University (TPU) and the Russian Academy of Sciences (RAS) developed a new mechanism to accumulate energy through metastable isotopic nuclei. Scientists believe that such energy, when accumulated in excessive volumes, may lead to various emergencies at nuclear reactors. However, if taken into account, this may contribute to safety improvement. Hence, scientists are searching ways to control energy storage and its further use for the benefit of the mankind.
