New polls show substantial support for nuclear energy
Sixty percent of respondents in a recent national survey favored the use of nuclear energy, with only 25 percent opposing its use. While the latest Bisconti Research poll focuses on nuclear power and electricity generation, its findings on public interest in climate change and using a spectrum of sources to meet energy needs are consistent with a recent Pew Research Center poll on a broad set of energy policy and climate change topics. The approaches the two online surveys took to measuring public opinion on nuclear energy yielded different numbers but found some common ground.

The fracture behavior of several tungsten based alloys was characterized by standard Charpy tests which have been performed up to 1100°C in vacuum. Due to their fabrication history (powder mixing, pressing, sintering, rolling) all materials had specific micro-structures which led to typical delamination fractures. The influence of notch machining method was also investigated. All results are discussed and assessed with respect to the optimization of future divertor component fabrication.
