Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Observation of liquid lithium flow in metal trenches has been made using a lithium-metal infused trench (LiMIT) tile and is reported here. The flow is self-pumping and uses thermoelectric magnetohydrodynamics to remove heated lithium and replenish it at a lower temperature. Flow velocities have been measured and compared with theoretical predictions.
