  1. 1. Decay Chains of Fast Alpha Emitters in the Actinide Region

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Fysiska institutionen; Lunds universitet/Partikel- och kärnfysik

    Author : Tanvir Sayed; [2024]
    Keywords : alpha decay; alpha emissions; fine structure; decay chain; decay scheme; alpha spectrometry; actinide; nucleus; nuclear structure; nuclear states; energy levels; uranium isotopes; U310 experiment; parasitic runs; decay station; TASISpec ; moving window deconvolution; digitisers; alpha-gamma coincidence; 221-Th decay; fine structure of alpha decay to 217-Ra; GSI; Gamow s theory; Geiger-Nuttall; chain search; short half-lives; Physics and Astronomy;

    Abstract : With the advent of increasingly advanced spectroscopic instruments after the turn of the century, it has become accessible to unravel the structure of instantly ‘vanishing’ nuclei, with lifetimes as short as 1 μs, and responsible for pile-up events in analog electronics. Experimental data has been recorded by the Nuclear Structure Group at Lund University for 48Ca/50Ti + nat. READ MORE

  2. 2. Robust non-Abelian geometric phases on three-qubit spin codes

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Materialteori

    Author : Parham Azish; [2024]
    Keywords : Quantum information theory; Holonomic quantum computing; non-abelian systems;

    Abstract : Quantum holonomies are non-Abelian Geometric Phases predominantly observed in adiabatic, non-adiabatic, or measurement-based quantum evolutions. Their significance lies in their potential utility within quantum computing due to their robustness against noise throughout the parameter path. READ MORE

  3. 3. Powering Sustainable Development with SMRs - A qualitative study examining the potential effects of Small Modular Reactor deployment in Southern Sweden

    University essay from Göteborgs universitet/Graduate School

    Author : Alixander Kanaan; Marcus Magnusson; [2023-07-19]
    Keywords : Small modular reactors; Sustainability; Eco-Innovation;

    Abstract : Europe has been immensely impacted by the recent turmoil in the continent and an energy crisis has emerged. Energy prices have soared over a period of two years and the price of energy is still at elevated levels throughout Europe and a high dependency on fossil fuels for energy production has become inevitable.

  4. 4. Terminating Apartheid's Atomic Bomb

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Statsvetenskapliga institutionen

    Author : Oskar Hedman; [2023]
    Keywords : South Africa; Nuclear Disarmament; Tripart Accord; Frederik de Klerk; Nuclear Non-proliferation Treaty; Law and Political Science;

    Abstract : South Africa secretly produced six and a half nuclear weapons from 1978-1989 before undertaking a complete nuclear disarmament between 1989-1991; it is the only instance in history of when a state has discarded an indigenously developed nuclear arsenal and presents a unique case for studying the nuclear decision-making of states. This thesis is a theory-testing case study where I, by conducting a qualitative content analysis of previous research on South Africa’s nuclear rollback, examine how well Scott D Sagan’s nuclear policy model can explain the nuclear disarmament of South Africa.

  5. 5. Nuclear Heritage and Memory : A Case-Study of the Potential Repository in Östhammar

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för ABM

    Author : Disa Kalin; [2023]
    Keywords : Radioactive waste repositories; Knowledge management; Memory Philosophy ; Cultural heritage; Slutförvaring av radioaktivt avfall; kunskapshantering; minnen; kulturarv;

    Abstract : Den här uppsatsen hanterar ämnet om ett nukleärt arv och minne genom en fallstudie bunden till fyra identifierade aktörer. Alla fyra arbetar med etablerandet av ett slutförvar för högaktivt och långlivat radioaktivt avfall vilket förväntas vara fortsatt farligt under 100,000-tals år. READ MORE
