Technology requirements for fusion--fission reactors based on magnetic-mirror confinement

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Technology requirements for mirror hybrid reactors are discussed. The required 120-keV neutral beams can use positive ions. The magnetic fields are 8 T or under and can use NbTi superconductors. The value of Q (where Q is the ratio of fusion power to injection power) should be in the range of 1 to 2 for economic reasons relating to the cost of recirculating power. The wall loading of 14-MeV neutrons should be in the range of 1 to 2 MW/m/sup 2/ for economic reasons. Five-times higher wall loading will likely be needed if fusion reactors are to be economical. The ... continued below
