Low Energy Nuclear Reactions


Electricity from the earliest of time has been a topic that has fascinated everybody throughout the world. One of the cheapest and greatest advancement in terms of production of electricity is through the advent of nuclear technology. It has turned out to be efficient and clean way to produce energy throughout the world. Being on the effective side, nevertheless it also comprise of hazards and disasters. Thus there are increasing concerns to health and security among the nations of the world (Cacuci, 900-901).


The continuity of life on earth depends on the energy. For centuries, human beings have always desirable for diverse sources of energy.

After the industrial revolution, the fossil fuels became more popular. The limited amount of fossil fuels triggered the search for alternative energy sources. In the 20th century, nuclear energy was promoted as the only energy source that was capable of helping the continuation of industrial civilization. Although some people think nuclear energy is harmful as it carries radiation risk, it is an ideal energy source if managed carefully. The use of nuclear energy should be increased because of its outstanding economical, ecological and military advantages (Cacuci, 900-901).

The first remarkable advantage of nuclear energy is the fact that it is economical. To start with, nuclear energy decreases the dependence on oil. Primarily, nuclear energy is an alternative source for carbon-based fuels. There is no other kind of energy that can take the place of fossil fuels (coal, oil and gas),
