Overview of proposed accelerator-driven spallation target applications

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

With the rapid development of particle accelerator technologies during the Strategic Defense Initiative (SDI) of the 1980s and the severe institutional and political challenges faced by the nuclear reactor community, there has been increasing interest in the use of particle accelerators to fulfill some nuclear missions in the US and abroad. This paper describes the enabling technologies, as well as proposed applications for neutron sources (research applications), tritium production (defense), production of other special isotopes for medical or space-power applications, and waste actinide transmutation.
