The alpha particles further heat the fuel, increasing the rate of fusion reactions, thus producing more alpha particles.
When actinium decays, it produces a series of daughter atoms, each of which gives off its own alpha particle, increasing the chances that the cancer cell will be destroyed.
It takes a direct hit from just one alpha particle to destroy a lone cancer cell.
He explores the interactions with matter and energetic particles, including photons, electrons, protons, alpha particles and neutrons with a variety of applications including photon and neutron cross sections, charged particle stopping powers, electron mean ranges and angular distributions, covering photons as they appear in long wavelengths and other configurations and as an element of photoelectric absorption, electrons, including in elastic scattering from and atom and in the case of collision energy loss, protons and heavier ions, including proton and alpha particle stopping powers in selected materials, and a range of topics on neutron interactions.
In an upcoming Physical Review Letters, Taleyarkhan's team presents evidence of fusion in bubbles initiated by a uranium-based trigger that emits alpha particles instead of neutrons.
A solid neutron converter material of boron is placed on the aluminum drift electrode producing alpha particles that ionize the fill gas mixture of argon and methane.
However, at measurements at latitude 54[degrees]N (in Pushchino), absence of the daily period  also was revealed when using collimators restricting a flow of the alpha particles of radioactive decay at the direction to the north celestial pole.
