* Integrated physics of self-heated plasma: While the past deuterium-tritium (D-T) tokamak experiments that produced weakly burning plasma were a milestone, a broad range of scientific and technological issues nevertheless remain to be explored in the strong self-heating regime, where local energy deposited by fusion-produced alpha particles exceeds the energy from external sources.
They've also taken a step toward showing how this type of radiation, called alpha particles, indirectly hurts those bystanders.
In 1934 the French physicists Frederic Joliot-Curie (1900-1958) and Irene Joliot-Curie (1897-1956), his wife, who was also the daughter of Pierre and Marie Curie (see 1897), were bombarding aluminum atoms with alpha particles.
These new nuclear therapies minimize harm to normal tissue both by using antibodies to ferry the isotopes specifically to cancer cells and, increasingly, by employing isotopes that emit be or alpha particles (see sidebar below).
It decayed after less than a millisecond by emitting an alpha particle, which consists of two protons and two neutrons, to create an iso tope of element 110 with an atomic mass of 273.
The radiative capture reaction rate refers to the reaction between a carbon-12 nucleus and a helium nucleus, also known as an alpha particle, that takes place within a star.
Meanwhile, along with new MAHLI imagery, Curiosity's Chemistry and Camera (ChemCam) and its Alpha Particle X-Ray Spectrometer (APXS) are also inspecting the features for clues as to their nature, the report said.
