An inventive solution speeds up production of actinium-225
An Oak Ridge National Laboratory researcher has built a device that can speed up the separation of the medical radioisotope actinium-225 from irradiated thorium targets and withstand the high-radiation environment of a hot cell. In July, ORNL announced that Kevin Gaddis, a chemistry technician at the lab, had built and tested a prototype and was working to secure a patent for a device that cut separations time by 75 percent.

Celebrate the history of nuclear technology with this special reprinting of 50 Years with Nuclear Fission. The 75th anniversary in 2013 of fission's discovery has been marked by this diamond anniversary edition, reproducing the proceedings from the 1989 ANS topical conference covering the first 50 years following the discovery. About 20 pioneers of the nuclear enterprise—including Alvin Weinberg, Pavle Savic, Glenn Seaborg, Edward Teller, John Wheeler, Chauncey Starr, and Walter Zinn—attended the conference and wrote papers for the proceedings.
