The feasibility of a PDC that uses radiatively cooled grids and collector plate made of carbon/carbon fiber composite is presented. Elimination of the coolant makes a thin grid design possible. The advantages are increased direct conversion efficiency, no tritium permeation into grid tube coolant, and compact design.
