We are considering non-electric missions for high power z pinches with DT fuel. The missions are: transmutation of spent nuclear reactor fuel, production of medical isotopes, hydrogen production, and materials testing. Near term (5-20 yr) missions that are well suited to z-pinch driven DT fusion neutrons are: the production of M o~~, the most widely used medical isotope, intense neutron flux materials tester, and to validate the use of GW level z pinches to transmutate spent nuclear reactor fuel. These missio…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
