"Canadian breakthrough in radioisotope production" -
Two Canadian research organisations have completed the first joint production run of actinium-225 (Ac-225), one of the rarest medical radioisotopes in the world.
"Colliding lasers double the energy of proton beams" - Researchers from Sweden's
Chalmers University of Technology and the University of Gothenburg present
a new method which can double the energy of a proton beam produced by laser-based
particle accelerators. The breakthrough could lead to more compact, cheaper
equipment that could be useful for many applications, including proton therapy.

A Domestic Electron Ion Collider Would Unlock Scientific Mysteries of Atomic Nuclei, Maintain U.S. Leadership in Accelerator Science, New Report Says -
The science questions that could be answered by an electron ion collider (EIC) – a very large-scale particle accelerator – are significant to advancing our understanding of the atomic nuclei that make up all visible matter in the universe, says a new report by the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine.
Beyond its impact on nuclear science, the advances made possible by an EIC could have far-reaching benefits to the nation's science- and technology-driven economy as well as to maintaining U.S. leadership in nuclear physics and in collider and accelerator technologies..

"Producing Technetium | Major Clinical Breakthrough at the Centre de recherche du CHUS" -
Cyclotron-production of Tc-99m can offset these needs. The process does not produce
nuclear waste, making it a promising green technology. It is also less expensive compared
to the investment required to build a nuclear reactor.
