Fukiushima Daiichi: 10 years on

It was a rather normal day back on March 11, 2011, at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant before 2:45 p.m. That was the time when the Great Tohoku Earthquake struck, followed by a massive tsunami that caused three reactor meltdowns and forever changed the nuclear power industry in Japan and worldwide. Now, 10 years later, much has been learned and done to improve nuclear safety, and despite many challenges, significant progress is being made to decontaminate and defuel the extensively damaged Fukushima Daiichi reactor site. This is a summary of what happened, progress to date, current situation, and the outlook for the future there.

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.
