Research and development activities for accelerator driven system at JAERI

Tsujimoto, Kazufumi; Sasa, Toshinobu; Nishihara, Kenji; Oigawa, Hiroyuki; Takano, Hideki*

The Japan Atomic Energy Research Institute (JAERI) is developing an Accelerator Driven System (ADS) for transmutation of nuclear waste such as minor actinide (MA) and long-lived fission product (LLFP). To study and evaluate the feasibility of ADS by physical and engineering viewpoints, the Transmutation Experimental Facility (TEF) is proposed under a framework of J-PARC (Japan Proton Accelerator Research Complex) project. The TEF consists of two facilities named as Transmutation Physics Experimental Facility (TEF-P) and ADS Target Test Facility (TEF-T). The TEF-P consists of a zero-power critical assembly which is operated with a low power proton beam to research the reactor physics and the controllability of ADS. The TEF-T is a facility for material irradiation and partial mockup of beam window which can accept a maximum 600MeV-200kW proton beam into the Pb-Bi eutectic target. The purposes, experimental items and the specifications of the facilities are described.
