  • Abstract A design study for the fission product (FP) target was performed to maximize the transmutation of 99Tc and 129I in the Hybrid Power Extraction Reactor (HYPER) system without causing any core safety concerns. Localized thermal flux is obtained by inserting moderators such as CaH2. Many types of target design concepts have been investigated. The concept where 99Tc is loaded as a plate type in the outermost region and 129I is loaded as NaI rods mixed with CaH2 rods in the inner region is… CONTINUE READING
