This documents is a general overview of  how the basics of how the nuclear anode works for the nuclear magnetron. 

Nuclear Anode

The Question:  Why did we use a nuclear anode in the Nuclear Magnetron for making power?

  • The nuclear anode is quite different from a standard magnetron anode.  Nuclear anodes have no power supply attached to them to make the magnetron resonate and produce power.  All the energy for the anode comes from the isotope particle ejection shown by the red line in the picture above. As the particle passes by the nuclear anode resonators, they pass there energy to the anode just like in a regular magnetron.  Nuclear anodes are designed to work at much higher currents and power levels than a standard magnetron would work. The speed of the particles works just like the anode had a power supply attached to the anode.

The Question:  Are  nuclear anodes radioactive in a Nuclear Magnetron.?

  • No, although they are named as a nuclear anode they do not have any kind of nuclear isotopes in them for the device. Just like your car has to be started, a nuclear anode has to be started too, to make it work at resonating and produce energy.  Nuclear anodes are very different from a regular magnetron to design.  They have many features to take into account that normal magnetrons don't have. 

The Question:  What does the nuclear anode do with the heat.?

  • The nuclear anode acts as a heat transfer device to keep the inside of the anode from melting in the Nuclear Magnetron when it is powered up and running.? Again nuclear anodes are very diferent in design than a standard magnetron is, nuclear magnetrons are designed to run for years and years once they are powered up. There is no reason to turn them off.  They need to last almost as long as the iostope does.
