Carcinogenic risks of internal exposures to alpha-emitters (except radon) are relatively poorly understood. Since exposure may occur in environmental, malicious, accidental and occupational settings, understanding consequent risks is a priority for radiation protection. An occupational study in nuclear workers addresses this need as detailed histor…

The design of a divertor target for DEMO remains one of the most challenging engineering tasks to be overcome on the path to fusion power. Under the European DEMO programme, a promising concept known as Thermal Break has been developed at CCFE. This concept is a variation of the ITER tungsten divertor in which the pure Copper interlayer between Cop…

The paper is a tribute to Nicol Peacock and has a focus on interests and developments at Culham Laboratory from ~ 1970 when Nicol led the UKAEA spectroscopy team. The paper charts a little of the evolution of these models and their data through the seventies and eighties on into this century at Culham. The paper concludes with the state of efforts …
