A new atomic mechanism for nuclear isomeric energy release: TE{sup 2}N

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

In this short note we wish to describe schemes which mix atomic and nuclear energy levels and so permit transfer of nuclear energy to the atomic system from which it is extracted. In addition, we will describe a scheme for stimulating this transfer process which offers the possibility of multi-kilovolt coherent radiation. These ideas are based upon newly available, novel experimental techniques which permit the precise filling of atomic levels and the availability of a broad range of lasers. These new abilities permit the tuning of atomic levels so that they are degenerate or nearly degenerate with nuclear isomeric levels. ... continued below

These ideas are based upon newly available, novel experimental techniques which permit the precise filling of atomic levels and the availability of a broad range of lasers. These new abilities permit the tuning of atomic levels so that they are degenerate or nearly degenerate with nuclear isomeric levels. Such processes permit the exploration of highly leveraged research which could lead to radiation free Ultra High Energy Density Materials in addition to X-Ray Lasers with Gamma ray energies. 2 refs.
