U.S. reactor technologies to be featured at IAEA conference
A virtual side event at the 64th General Conference of the International Atomic Energy Agency will spotlight U.S. reactor technologies. The free event, US Reactor Technologies: Flexible Energy Security for Real-World Challenges, will be held this Thursday, September 24, from 9:00 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. (EDT).
The event will highlight the capabilities of small modular reactors and other innovative reactors for addressing countries’ current needs. It will also examine anticipated challenges in the future, as well as underscore the need to act now.
The event is sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Nuclear Energy. Advanced registration is required.

Boron nuclide and tritium projectile interactions are considerable in terms of nuclear energy systems. This study aims to investigate the realization of the nuclear fusion reactions of the bombardment of boron nuclei with tritium. In addition, the 8B(t,*), 9B(t,*), and 10B(t,*) reactions have focused on the use of the resulting product particles in nuclear technology applications, particularly in nuclear medicine applications, in terms of energy and number. Tritium-induced reactions from boron isotopes (8B, 9B, and 10B) at 50 and 100 MeV were modeled by the GEANT4 and EMPIRE Monte Carlo codes. Gamma, alpha, tritium, deuteron, proton, and neutron emission spectra (GEANT4-10.3) were obtained, and cross sections per energy (EMPIRE-3.2-MALTA) were calculated. Fusion cross sections and 6Li and 7Li production cross sections, which are critical in thermonuclear fusion reactors as basic fusion reactions, are discussed based on the 8B(t,*), 9B(t,*), and 10B(t,*) reactions.
