Title: Tutorial: Principles and Rationale of the Fusion-Fission Hybrid Burner Reactor
Author: Stacey, Weston M.
Abstract: The potential advantages of Fusion-Fission Hybrid (FFH) reactors (relative to critical fast reactors) for closing the back end of the nuclear fuel cycle are discussed. The choices of fission and fusion technologies for FFH burner reactors that would fission the transuranics remaining in spent fuel discharged from nuclear power reactors are summarized. The conceptual design and fuel cycle performance of the SABR FFH burner reactor are presented, and a fusion power development schedule with a symbiotic dual FFH path is outlined.
