Indiana Senate bill will have state consider SMRs
A new bill in the Indiana state Senate creates guidelines for state regulators to consider small modular reactors should utilities want to build them. Senate Bill 271 was sponsored by Sen. Eric Koch (R., Bedford), chair of the Senate Utilities Committee, and Sen. Blake Doriot (R., Goshen). Supporters of the bill said that SMRs could replace retiring coal plants and would supplement renewables.
The Indy Star reported on January 24 that the utilities committee passed the bill by a vote of eight to two and that it now heads to the full Senate.

Several hundred tin dots with controlled size were easily fabricated on transparency film by using an inkjet printer with SnSO4 solution. A surface treatment using Tween 20 as the surfactant was necessary. The SnSO4 was reduced to metallic tin with NaBH4. The thickness of metallic tin was 25 nm for one throughput.
