Project Type MQP Submission date 2007-04-26 Author Caroline Frances Mallary, PH URN E-project-042607-163246 Title A Radiatively Cooled ADS Beam Window Advisor Iannacchione, Germano S., PH Availability unrestricted
The purpose of this MQP is to examine candidate materials for the beam window of an ADS reactor. ADS stands for Accelerator Driven System, a means of spallating atomic nuclei to produce controlled nuclear fission, or to transmute existing nuclear waste into species that are easier to handle. Due to the high power necessary for ADS accelerators, the integrity of the accelerator's beam window has been a concern. Progress has been made on liquid-metal cooled ADS designs, especially in the ORNL and JAERI research centers, but problems have become apparent, too. My project was to investigate potential materials for an ADS beam window that can radiatively cool itself.
