It is a very striking and beautiful image, but it is not a neutron beam, as one might assume. Rather, this image shows the high-energy ion beam we use [...]
Phoenix and SHINE Achieve New World Record for Strongest Nuclear Fusion Reaction in a Steady-State System. Leading nuclear technology companies collaborating to help turn nuclear weapons into medicine and help a billion patients. Breakthrough has potential to transform medical isotope production, solve a global health care shortage, provide a stepping stone to cleaner, safer, more abundant energy
March 22, 2016 - Phoenix Nuclear Labs (PNL) and SHINE Medical Technologies (SHINE) announced today that they successfully operated their accelerator-based neutron generator for 132 consecutive hours with greater than 97% uptime.
SHINE Medical Technologies and Phoenix Nuclear Labs (PNL) announced today that they successfully operated their second-generation neutron driver prototype for 24 consecutive hours with 99% uptime. Completion of this milestone is an important demonstration of the reliability and robustness of the PNL neutron driver, which is a key enabling technology for SHINE’s isotope production facility.
