The factors influencing the level of U‐232 contamination in U‐233 are examined for heavy‐water‐moderated, light‐water‐moderated and liquid‐metal cooled fast breeder reactors fueled with natural or low‐enriched uranium and containing thorium mixed with the uranium or in separate target channels. U‐232 decays with a 69‐year half‐life through 1.9‐year half‐life Th‐228 to T1–208, which emits a 2.6 MeV gamma ray upon decay. We find that pressurized light‐water‐reactors fueled with LEU‐thorium fuel… Expand
