A day in the life of the nuclear community
The November issue of Nuclear News is focused on the individuals who make up our nuclear community.
We invited a small group of those individuals to tell us about their day-to-day work in some of the many occupations and applications of nuclear science and technology, and they responded generously. They were ready to tell us about the part they play, together with colleagues and team members, in supplying clean energy, advancing technology, protecting safety and health, and exploring fundamental science.
In these pages, we see a community that can celebrate both those workdays that record progress moving at a steady pace and the exceptional days when a goal is reached, a briefing is delivered, a contract goes through, a discovery is made, or an unforeseen challenge is overcome.
The Nuclear News staff hopes that you enjoy meeting these members of our community—or maybe get reacquainted with friends—through their words and photos.

We are proposing to connect a supercritical CO2 gas turbine (SCOT) power generator to the Operational Recovery of Separated Hydrogen and Heat Inquiry-2 (Oroshhi-2) nuclear fusion primary molten salt test loop constructed at the National Institute for Fusion Science and conduct a demonstration test of the power generation principle from the world’s first nuclear fusion simulated heat output. In this paper, we describe the results of a design study of the FLiNaK/CO2 intermediate heat exchanger and SCOT power generation system and related equipment that can be connected to the molten salt test loop. From the results of this study, it was concluded that the power generation principle verification test with 20-kW(electric)–class power generation with an efficiency of 20% is possible by the SCOT system connected to the FLiNaK test loop in Oroshhi-2 equipment via the intermediate heat exchanger.
