Abstract

The aim of this article is to present some of the more basic nuclear science research topics. All examples have been performed at, or in collaboration with, the Institute for Transuranium Elements. None of these examples is in relation to current nuclear energy production systems, yet they all have a well-founded place either for basic research or new and innovative applications. The topics covered include:
-"Switching on" nuclear reactions using very intense lasers.
-Investigations of the condensed phases of Americum under high pressure.
-Criticality aspects of thin fissile layers.
-Photo-emission studies on thin-actinide films.
-Alpha-immunotherapy for cancer treatment ('Magic bullet').
-ITU's universal nuclide chart and radioactive decay applet. plet.
