Main Question or Discussion Point

I am looking to write a paper on nuclear power.

Our professor said the research/data (has to be peer-reviewed) that I will be using should be no more than 5 years old.

What would be a good part of nuclear power to focus on?

First I though effect of Japan's disaster on the rest of the world, but I'm sure my prof. will say that's too recent. What do you think?

Than I thought of nuclear Fusion, but I am not sure what kind of information there is on this topic.

A few more topics would be current research in nuclear waste, and current research in nuclear fission.

Which topic would be good to focus on and that provides me with enough recent studies to write a 5-6 page paper.

Thanks

Go to your local university and look at recent issues of Nuclear News (published by the American Nuclear Society). This will give you some ideas of current research areas to look into (my MS has a specialty in radiation protection and my thesis was LLRW from cyclotrons, not from NPPs).
