This note deals with key issues of fusion reactor technologies based
on magnetic confinement, focusing on the tokamak concept. Overview of the fusion
power plant system will be introduced and energetics of which will be addressed.
Then, the way how to build and operate a tokamak is going to be covered.
introduced through the physics of radioactive decay and chemistry of
radioisotopes. Topics covered includes: Nuclear properties, nuclear forces and
nuclear structure are described. Details on alpha, beta, gamma decay, and
note explains the following topics: Classical Two-Body Kinematics, Special
Relativity, Particle-like Nature of Waves, Wave-like properties of Particles,
The Shrodinger equation, The Rutherford-Bohr model of the Atom, The Hydrogen
Atom, Many-Electron Atoms, Nuclear Properties, Force Between Nucleons,
This book covers the following topics: Fundamental properties
of nuclei, simple nuclear thermodynamics, types of nuclear reactions,
instruments for the detection of radiation, artificial radioactivity, chemical
methods of isolation and concentration, stable isotopes and masses.
