Abstract

Fusion Fission Hybrid Systems (FFHS) could have a potential role in the management of fission reactor wastes, with (in principle) some advantage over the comparable Accelerator Driven systems, devoted to the same objective. The validation of the concept poses major challenges in the area of fusion “source” development. However, the physics of the multiplying and transmutation blanket has also to be carefully understood and validated. Simple experiments can be envisaged for that purpose. Some of these experiments have already been performed in a different research framework (i.e. validation of the ADS concepts) and could constitute a very first database. Moreover, a new series of similar experiments could be planned.
