  1. 1. Three-nucleon forces in nuclear physics simulations

    Author : Tor Djärv; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; three-nucleon forces; configuration interaction; normal ordering; nuclear physics; many-body physics;

    Abstract : The aim of this licentiate thesis is to evaluate the normal-ordered two-body (NO2B)-approximation as a computationally promising way to incorporate realistic three-nucleon forces (3NFs) in nuclear many-body simulations using the no-core-shell-model. The existence and importance of 3NFs is predicted in chiral effective field theories of the strong-nuclear force. READ MORE

  2. 2. A Tomographic Measurement Technique for Irradiated Nuclear Fuel Assemblies

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Staffan Jacobsson Svärd; Anders Bäcklin; Ane Håkansson; Klaas van der Meer; [2004]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Nuclear physics; tomography; nuclear fuel; SPECT; core physics; validation; pin power; safeguards; partial-defect verification; Kärnfysik; NATURAL SCIENCES Physics Nuclear physics; NATURVETENSKAP Fysik Kärnfysik;

    Abstract : The fuel assemblies used at the Swedish nuclear power plants contain typically between 100 and 300 fuel rods. An experimental technique has been demanded for determining the relative activities of specific isotopes in individual fuel rods without dismantling the assemblies. READ MORE

  3. 3. Studies of Accelerator-Driven Systems for Transmutation of Nuclear Waste

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Marcus Dahlfors; Ane Håkansson; Alfred Hogenbirk; [2006]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Nuclear physics; transmutation; accelerator-driven systems; Energy Amplifier; subcritical reactors; nuclear waste; Monte Carlo simulation; burnup; actinides; fission products; benchmark; nuclear data; neutron cross sections; sensitivity analysis; neutron source; spallation target; n_TOF experiment; neutron time-of-flight; cross section measurement; FLUKA; EA-MC; MCNP; MCNP-X; EADF; TRADE; Kärnfysik; NATURAL SCIENCES Physics Nuclear physics; NATURVETENSKAP Fysik Kärnfysik;

    Abstract : Accelerator-driven systems for transmutation of nuclear waste have been suggested as a means for dealing with spent fuel components that pose potential radiological hazard for long periods of time. While not entirely removing the need for underground waste repositories, this nuclear waste incineration technology provides a viable method for reducing both waste volumes and storage times.

    Abstract : Fission is the most important nuclear reaction for society at large today due to its use in energy production. However, this has raised the problem of how to treat the long-lived radioactive waste from nuclear reactors. READ MORE

  5. 5. Neutron induced light-ion production from iron and bismuth at 175 MeV

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Riccardo Bevilacqua; Stephan Pomp; Magnus Wolke; [2010]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; neutron induced reactions; light-ion production; quasi-monoenergetic neutron beam; nuclear data; accelerator driven systems; NATURAL SCIENCES Physics Nuclear physics; NATURVETENSKAP Fysik Kärnfysik; Nuclear Physics; kärnfysik; Applied Nuclear Physics; tillämpad kärnfysik;

    Abstract : Light-ions (protons, deuterons, tritons, 3He and α articles) production in the interaction of 175 MeV neutrons with iron and bismuth has been measured using the Medley setup at the The Svedberg Laboratory (TSL) in Uppsala. These measurements have been conducted in the frame of an international collaboration whose aim is to provide the scientific community with new nuclear data of interest for the development of Accelerator Driven Systems, in the range of 20 to 200 MeV.
