Abstract

Alternate fuel configurations which enable tritium to be bred within the target itself could provide a significant advantage for ICF reactors since a complicated tritium breeding blanket can be avoided. The present work considers a D-fueled target (termed the 'AFLINT' concept) for this purpose. A target design is proposed that achieves an internal Tritium Breeding Ratio (TBR) of approx. 1. 1. , sufficient for recycle of tritium for manufacture of subsequent targets in a 'closed cycle' fashion. **3He is also recycled to obtain optimum burn conditions.
