Physics Colloquium

"Mu*STAR Accelerator-Driven Subcritical Molten-Salt All-Purpose non-Nuclear Reactor"

Presented by Rolland Johnson, Muons Inc.

Tuesday, May 7, 2019, 3:30 pm — Large Seminar Room, Bldg. 510

The Mu*STAR BHAG[1] is: To make superconducting RF accelerators so powerful and efficient that they make enough neutrons to produce nuclear energy for electricity or for process heat at less cost than from wind, solar, or natural gas, without weapons proliferation legacies of enrichment and chemical reprocessing, by burning unwanted nuclear materials. The arguments are presented to support that such a goal is possible in the near future.
