Patent JP 07239397 A2

Transmutation of radioactive waste by muon-catalyzed fusion reaction; Hideo Harada, Hiroshi Takahashi (Doryokuro Kakunenryo, Japan); issued 12 Sep 1995; appl. 28 Feb 1994; 7 pp. Abstract: In the method using 14 MeV-neutron generated from muon-catalyzed fusion, a target cell consists of a D-T high pressure gas cylinder target successively surrounded by (1) a first FP cell containing 90Sr or 137Cs, (2) a transuranium element cell, (3) a 6Li cell containing 6Li-Al alloy, (4) a second FP cell contg. 93Zr, 99Tc, 129I, or 135Cs, and (5) a thermalizer part containing D2O, and (6) a 6Li outer cell. T may be supplied from 6Li(n,a)T using neutron thermalized by D2O.
