Simulation of 14-MeV Neutron Damage to Potential CTR Materials

  • R. J. Borg


The reaction D(T, n)4 He occurs either as the primary-plasma reaction or as a side reaction in nearly all the controlled thermonuclear reactor (CTR) design schemes. Neutrons produced by this reaction possess an energy of 14.1 MeV and are capable of causing an enormous amount of damage, the extent and character of which is still mostly unknown.
