[en] This glossary has been prepared in conjunction with the 'Energy in Minnesota' Workshop. The workshop was held in response to legislator's needs for information on a spectrum of energy related issues. The definitions which are provided here are terms frequently used in discussing energy issues. The glossary has been divided into two parts. The first section includes general terms related to energy. The second section includes only nuclear terms. This separation has been made because of the large amount of specialized terminology in nuclear technology. The sources from which all the terms are excerpted are listed at the end of the glossary. Additional definitions and information may be found in these references
[en] Professional biographical profiles of over 3800 individuals (alphabetical by surname). This work takes a broader and more applied view of energy science than the publication it supersedes, Who's Who in Atoms. Contents: Biographical profiles. Country and topic listings
[en] This study surveyed key nuclear employers to determine which journals and magazines were used to recruitment advertisement and to assess the credibility of advertisement as a recruitment technique. Volume of advertisement appearing in Physics Today was categorized and recorded for the years 1966 to 1977. Regression analysis was used to determine the relationships between the categories of advertisement and labor force information for physicists, physics instructors, and physicists in the nuclear field. The nuclear employers surveyed identified 166 journals in which they advertise for scientific, engineering, and technical personnel. Employers considered help-wanted advertising to be more effective and cost-effective than recruitment through state or private employment services. The employers as a group spent more money on help-wanted advertising in journals than on state and private employment services, recommendations from present staff, and professional meeting recruitment. Employers did spend more money on campus recruitment and help-wanted ads in newspapers than on help-wanted ads in journals. It was found that a help-wanted index for physicists in a disaggregated form could be constructed
[en] This study applies a set of indicators to assess the peaceful nature of a state's nuclear program. Evaluation of a country's nuclear program relative to these indicators can help the international community to take appropriate actions to ensure that the growth of the global nuclear energy industry proceeds peacefully and to minimize nuclear proliferation risks.
[en] Alvin Weinberg's book is a autobiographical historical account of the beginning of the nuclear era, the development and maturity of the nuclear era, and its decline. It concentrates on the intertwining of his professional life as a nuclear energy pioneer with the development of the nuclear era
[en] This annual report summarizes the results of the ten NERI research projects initiated in FY 2000 and completed in FY 2003, and the research progress on the NERI projects initiated in FY 2001 and FY 2002. The final summaries for the NERI projects initiated in FY 1999 can be found in the NERI 2002 Annual Report. This report disseminates the results of NERI-sponsored research to the wide R&D community to spur yet more innovation, assuring a bright future for nuclear energy in the United States and the world.
[en] Present accounts of U.S. energy consumption are incomplete in two ways: they include neither the direct military uses of nuclear energy nor the mostly military, nonfuel uses of uranium. Preliminary estimates indicate that significant distortions are created in the data on U.S. nuclear energy consumption patterns as a result of these omissions
[en] With one of the largest nuclear power programs in the world, Japan is looking ahead to doubling the number of its power reactors by the year 2010, although industry and government officials admit that the pace of construction necessary to reach this goal may be difficult to achieve. Japan also plans to burn reprocessed plutonium in light water reactors (LWRs) and--in the next century--commercial fast breeder reactors (FBRs). The planned recycling of plutonium, intended to avoid creation of a large stockpile and to use energy resources more efficiently, has sparked some international opposition. And the siting of new nuclear plants in Japan has become more difficult because of local opposition in some areas. In separate interviews, Nuclear News talked to two Japanese nuclear industry executives--at the Japan Atomic Industrial Forum (JAIF) and Tokyo Electric Power Co., (Tepco)--for an update on the nuclear future in Japan
