Latest Research in Nuclear Reactors
The Journal of Nuclear Energy Science & Power Generation Technology publishes the Latest Research in Nuclear Reactors. It covers all the major fields and interdisciplinary aspects of Nuclear Reactors 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. A nuclear reactor, or power plant, is a series of machines that can control nuclear fission to produce electricity. The fuel that nuclear reactors use to produce nuclear fission is pellets of the element uranium. In a nuclear reactor, atoms of uranium are forced to break apart. As they split, the atoms release tiny particles called fission products. Fission products cause other uranium atoms to split, starting a chain reaction. The energy released from this chain reaction creates heat.
