The problem of confining a plasma, with sufficiently high density and temperature, is of crucial importance if nuclear fusion is to be made usable as a form of power generation. Tokamaks a" devices with a toroidal geometry a" are among the most popular candidates by which such confinement can be achieved. A tokamak separates a plasma from... more...

Geological settings selected as potential host formations for the deep geological disposal of radioactive waste are chosen for, among other assets, their long-term stability and buffering capacity against destabilising events and processes. These proceedings present the outcomes of a geosphere stability workshop, held in November 2007, that focused... more...

This technical report describes the results of the Nuclear Energy Agency's CLAYTRAC project, in which natural tracer data from nine sites was evaluated to assess potential impacts of disposal of radiological waste in geological repositories. It shows scientific information from numerous sites and applies robust analytical methods to improve... more...

Many countries have recognised that greater use of nuclear power could play a valuable role in reducing carbon dioxide emissions. However, given the high capital cost and complexity of nuclear power plants, financing their construction often remains a challenge. This is especially true where such financing is left to the private sector in the context... more...

Commercial nuclear power has long been one of the most controversial of all power-generating technologies, but the debate has not always been particularly informed. This book discusses the physics and technology of energy production, reactor design, nuclear safety, and attempts made by the US to resolve the problem of nuclear waste disposal. more...
