CAN Laser Driven Liquid-phase Transmutator Monitored Realtime by Fiber Laser

April 12, 2019 | T. Tajima | Paper

We introduce a method of transmutation of spent radioactive nuclei in a liquid molten salt solution with fusion neutrons through a series of energy enhancements from accelerated deuterons via fusion to fission. This method is a part of the partitioning & transmutation (P&T) approach for the disposal of spent nuclear fuel where P&T enables the reduction of duration and volume of the spent nuclear fuel storage.
