Nuclear Analysis for the Blanket and Shield of the KrF Laser Driven Inertial Fusion Reactor SOMBRERO

The SOMBRERO inertial fusion reactor conceptual design produces 1000 MWe utilizing near symmetric illumination of targets by KrF laser. The blanket design optimization results in achieving an overall tritium breeding ratio of 1.25 and an overall reactor energy multiplication of 1.08. The first wall is expected to have a 5 full power year (FPY) lifetime. The… (More)
