Utilizing building materials to monitor for high enriched uranium

A new paper details how little samples of ubiquitous building materials, for example, tile or brick, can be utilized to test whether a facility has ever stored high enriched uranium (HEU), which can be utilized to make nuclear weapons. The method could fill in as a valuable forensic tool for national or international efforts related…

Specialists grow real time microscopy to examine materials under pressure

Scientists at North Carolina State University in the USA have exhibited a method that enables them to track microscopic changes in metals or other materials in real time while they are presented to extreme heat and loads for an extended period of time — a phenomenon known as creep. The method will facilitate endeavors to…
