Abstract

Alternate fuel configurations which enable tritium to be bred within the target itself could provide a significant advantage for ICF reactors. The present work considers a D-fueled target (termed the 'AFLINT' concept) for this purpose. A target design is proposed that provides recycle of tritium for manufacture of subsequent targets in a 'closed cycle' fashion. **3He is also recycled to obtain optimum burn conditions. For reactor studies, a Hg** plus **1 heavy ion beam driver and a dual liquid-fall reactor chamber are considered.
