What is Laser Enrichment Process? In one of our science modules we have studied about the Uranium Enrichment Process by Centrifuges. The fundamental principle behind the Uranium Enrichment by centrifuges is that U-235 weighs slightly less than U-238. This difference in weight is used to separate them. First Uranium is made to react with hydrofluoric ..
