Neutron Induced Fission Fragment Tracking Experiment (NIFFTE)

The NIFFTE Collaboration has designed, constructed, and operates a novel Time Projection Chamber for measuring fission cross-sections of major actinides to the highest achievable precision. The 3-d imaging capabilities of the detector enable us to investigate sources of systematic uncertainty from multiple directions, leading to better characterization of the energy-dependent cross-sections.

Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL)

Livermore’s defining responsibility is ensuring the safety, security and reliability of the nation’s nuclear deterrent. Yet LLNL’s mission is broader than stockpile stewardship, as dangers ranging from nuclear proliferation and terrorism to energy shortages and climate change threaten national security and global stability. The Laboratory’s science and engineering are being applied to achieve breakthroughs for counterterrorism and nonproliferation, defense and intelligence, energy and environmental security.

World Nuclear Association: Molten Salt Reactors

Molten salt reactors (MSRs) use molten fluoride salts as primary coolant, at low pressure. This itself is not a radical departure when the fuel is solid and fixed. But extending the concept to dissolving the fissile and fertile fuel in the salt certainly represents a leap in lateral thinking relative to nearly every reactor operated so far.
