The microscopic world is alive! Thorium (green balls) and Carbon (brown balls) atoms frantically move in the potential novel nuclear fuels material

Thorium sesquicarbide (Th2C3) is a potential candidate as a nuclear fuel for generation IV advanced reactors. The microscopic structure of this compound is shown in the figure. Physicists call that cube unit cell of the material, i.e. the smallest portion …

And yet they moves! Read More »
