Title (EN) FUSION NEUTRON SOURCE FOR BREEDING APPLICATIONS
(FR) SOURCE DE NEUTRON DE FUSION POUR DES APPLICATIONS DE SURRÉGÉNÉRATION
Abstract:
(EN) Disclosed are reactors, methods, and devices for improved nuclear fusion reactors that provide neutrons with a sufficient power density to efficiently breed fissile nuclear material, which can then optionally be used as an energy source. The reactors can also be used in improved nuclear fuel cycles wherein an adequate supply of fissile nuclear material is provided to nuclear power plants. This abstract is intended for use as a scanning tool only and is not intended to be limiting.
(FR) L'invention concerne des réacteurs, des procédés et des dispositifs pour réacteurs nucléaires de fusion améliorés, grâce auxquels des neutrons ayant une densité de puissance suffisante peuvent être produits pour créer efficacement un matériau nucléaire fissile qui peut être ensuite facultativement utilisé comme source d'énergie. Les réacteurs peuvent également être utilisés pour améliorer les cycles des combustibles nucléaires afin de fournir suffisamment de matériau nucléaire fissile à des centrales nucléaires. Cet abrégé a seulement pour but de donner une vue d'ensemble de l'invention et n'est pas destiné à la limiter.
