    • Abstract

       

      This paper describes the development of the indigenous plutonium-uranium mixed carbide nuclear fuel for the fast breeder test reactor. The fuel has performed satisfactorily and produced, for the first time in our country, nuclear electricity from a fast reactor. The experience and knowledge gained in the fuel development has provided great confidence for undertaking a programme on utilization of fast reactor technology for power production.
