  In recent years, Washington has required isotope-producing firms to move towards use of low-enriched uranium, which has less destructive capabilities. But a provision in an energy bill currently under consideration by the US Congress could undermine these efforts by eliminating constraints on exports of bomb-grade uranium by the US.   (). Safeguards and security risks at the (very) front end of the nuclear fuel cycle.

Long-standing efforts to develop a commercially viable laser-based process for uranium enrichment, initially with atomic and later molecular isotope separation, have had limited success. This article discusses a model for a third generation of laser enrichment technology where CO2 laser light is Raman scattered to generate 16 um photons that excite a vibrational mode in uranium Cited by: 2.   In , Russia’s nuclear energy agency, Rosatom, bought a 17 percent share of Uranium One. In , Rosatom sought to secure enough shares to give it a 51 percent stake.

And in July , in the worst security breach in the history of the U.S. nuclear program, an 82 year-old nun and her two compatriots broke into one of the most sensitive facilities in the nuclear weapons complex and defaced a bunker storing highly enriched uranium components for nuclear weapons.

Although the consequences for proliferation of nuclear materials at the very front end of the nuclear fuel cycle – specifically during mining, processing, transport and conversion of uranium – is low given it must be further processed through a series of steps before producing ‘direct use’ material suitable for nuclear weapons, safeguards (alongside materials security) allow for.Nuclear security was an established concept long before the s, but there was less of an expectation that nonstate actors (like terrorists and criminal organizations) were aware of or interested in nuclear items.

Rather, security was focused on more state-based threats, like espionage or sabotage. In the twenty-second episode of this podcast about young women working in nonproliferation, Arielle, Sam, Grace and guest Dr.
