IFE Fuel Processing




The major systems in the inertial fusion energy fuel cycle are shown in the figure below.  With a target fueling rate of around 5 targets/second, it is important to recycle the target materials back to the target factory.  A new task has been started at LANL to develop technologies for this purpose.
