Title: THE CESIUM-137 POWER PROGRAM. Quarterly Report No. 3

Abstract

Progress made in the development of the Cs/sup 137/ fueled thermoelectric generator for marine power applications is reported. Information is given on thermoelectric generator design, shielding, power conversion system, hazards evaluation, fuel element forming and cladding, fabrication, and heat transfer. Cs/sup 137/ energy calculations are presented along with shielding calculations. The development and fabrication of cesium polyglass for fuel application are included. (N.W.R.)
