Gauge Theories of Weak Interactions

The interplay among neutrinos and topic is an instance of the kind categorized as vulnerable, and such interactions additionally permit many common particle decays and the beta decay of the nuclei. the advance of gauge theories has supplied the foundation for an entire and constant account of vulnerable interactions, even as exhibiting their harmony with electromagnetism.

Sulphur-Assisted Corrosion in Nuclear Disposal Systems (EUROPEAN FEDERATION OF CORROSION SERIES)

Within the various disposal recommendations for high-level nuclear waste, corrosion of the metal boundaries and particularly the overpack/container is a huge factor. it truly is central for functionality evaluate to foretell the life of those bins. within the lifetime prediction of steel limitations for the disposal of excessive point nuclear waste (HLW) or of spent gas, the presence of (reduced) sulphur species is an argument of turning out to be value, because the sulphur species are all for localised corrosion phenomena.

Fluorescence emitted by the atoms or molecules in the path of the sheet of light is detected at right angles with a very sensitive camera to produce the spatial images shown above.
