NEA issues call to action in report on nuclear cost reductions
A new report from the Paris-based OECD Nuclear Energy Agency declares that nuclear power is needed for countries to meet their Paris Agreement decarbonization and energy security policy goals, but that governmental support for a rapid reduction in the cost of new nuclear capacity through the creation of certain policy frameworks is likely necessary.

The results of an extensive slow-neutron inelastic scattering study of heavy water at 299°K are reported. High-energy resolution measurements were made on thin D2O samples to obtain the double-differential scattering cross sections for energy transfers to 7 kT and momentum transfers to 9.5 Å−1. A spectral density for the modes of motion in D2O has been obtained by an extrapolation technique. Experimental results are presented in the form of the Egelstaff scattering function and are compared with calculations based on the McMurry-Russell modification of the Nelkin model for water and the Egelstaff-Schofield theory for an incoherent scatterer with a Gaussian self-correlation function.
