Abstract

This work compares the nuclear performance of candidate liquid metals, with respect to their neutron and gamma-ray heat deposition rates, for three different possible neutron sources: DT, DD and TT neutrons. This is intended primarily for inertial confinement fusion applications with pellet designs which incorporate internal tritium breeding that will possibly eliminate the need to breed tritium in the liquid metal coolant.
