Latest Research in Nuclear Fuel
The Journal of Nuclear Energy Science & Power Generation Technology publishes the Latest Research in Nuclear Fuel. It covers all the major fields and interdisciplinary aspects of Nuclear Fuel but does not limit to it. It also covers Nuclear Energy Research, Nuclear Engineering, Nuclear Materials & Fuel Research, Applied Nuclear Chemistry, Reactor Engineering & Design, Nuclear Thermal Hydraulics, Nuclear Instruments and Methods, Nuclear Waste Management, Radiological Safety Analysis, Reactor Construction, Nuclear Energy Policy, Radiation Measurement and Exposure Control, Fusion and Plasma Energy Research. Nuclear fuel is a material that can be burned by nuclear fission or fusion to derive nuclear energy. The various activities associated with the production of electricity from nuclear reactions are referred to collectively as the nuclear fuel cycle. The nuclear fuel cycle starts with the mining of uranium and ends with the disposal of nuclear waste. With the reprocessing of used fuel as an option for nuclear energy, the stages form a true cycle. Uranium is a naturally-occurring element which is enriched in the uranium-235 isotope, before being made into pellets that are loaded into the nuclear fuel assembly.
