• Next-step option design studies (DOE GRANT ER54350) 

      Stacey, Weston M.; Mandrekas, John (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2003-12)
    • Next-Step Option Physics (Grant ER54350) 

      Stacey, Weston M.; Mandrekas, John; Hoffman, E. A. (Elisha Albright) (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2004-10)
      For more than a decade we have been involved in physics and design analysis of possible nextstep tokamak options, including first ITER, later FIRE and most recently a tokamak neutron source for a near-term transmutation ...
    • Nuclear design and analysis of the fusion transmutation of waste reactor 

      Stacey, Weston M.; Hoffman, E. A. (Elisha Albright) (Georgia Institute of TechnologyAmerican Nuclear Society, 2004-01)
      The nuclear design and safety analyses for the Fusion Transmutation of Waste Reactor (FTWR) are described. The advantages of sub-critical operation for nuclear stability and safety are illustrated.
    • Nuclear Mission for Fusion (Transmutation, fissle breeding and Pu dispostion) 

      Stacey, Weston M. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyElsevier, 2006)
      There are potential applications of fusion neutron sources to 'drive' sub-critical fission reactors to perform one or more possible 'nuclear' missions. Since only a fraction of the neutrons in these applications would be ...
    • Sub-critical Transmutation Reactors with Tokamak Fusion Neutron Sources 

      Stacey, Weston M.; Mandrekas, John; Hoffman, E. A. (Elisha Albright) (Georgia Institute of TechnologyAmerican Nuclear Society, 2005)
      The principal results of a series of design scoping studies of sub-critical fast transmutation reactors (based on the nuclear and processing technology being developed in the USDoE Generation IV, Advanced Fuel Cycle ...
    • A Superconducting Tokamak Fusion Transmutation of Waste Reactor 

      Stacey, Weston M.; Mauer, A. N.; Mandrekas, John; Hoffman, E. A. (Elisha Albright) (Georgia Institute of TechnologyAmerican Nuclear Society, 2004-01)
      We are developing a Fusion Transmutation of Waste Reactor (FTWR) concept—a sub-critical, metal fuel, liquid metal cooled fast reactor driven by a tokamak DT fusion neutron source. An emphasis is placed on using nuclear, ...
    • Transmutation missions for fusion neutron sources 

      Stacey, Weston M. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyElsevier, 2005)
      There are a number of potential neutron transmutation missions (destruction of long-lived radioisotopes in spent nuclear fuel, ‘disposal’ of surplus weapons grade plutonium, ‘breeding’ of fissile nuclear fuel) that perhaps ...
