Fusion Breeding and Pure Fusion Development – Perceptions and Misperceptions
By Wallace Manheimer
Abstract: This paper examines fusion breeding, namely the use of 14 MeV fusion neutrons to breed 233U fuel for thermal nuclear reactors. This can be accomplished much more quickly than pure fusion. It can become main component of a power architecture that is economical, environmentally sound and has little if any proliferation risk.
