The energy amplifier: An analysis and a research proposal
The fast neuron Energy Amplifier (f-EA) proposed by C Rubbia et al is viewed in the context of the activities aimed at increasing the public acceptability of nuclear power. A few crucial architectural, technological, and reactor physics issues are pointed out. Areas to which Comitato Nazionale per la Ricerca e per lo sviluppo dell'Energia Nucleare e delle Energie Alternative (ENEA) Fusion Division could contribute with its expertise and facilities are identified. Comments are also presented with reference to the comparison between the safety characteristics of the f-EA and of the magnetic fusion reactor concept, published by C Rubbia in a recent report.
