Title: Continuous production of tritium in an isotope-production reactor with a separate circulation system

Abstract

A method is described for producing tritium in a fast breeder reactor cooled with liquid metal. Lithium is allowed to flow through the reactor in separate loops in order to facilitate the production and removal of tritium.
