“A subcritical neutron amplifier having a controllable neutron source and, associated with said source in cascade, an input region of neutron moderator material in which neutrons of epithermal energy from the source are moderated to thermal energy levels, a sequent fuel region containing neutron fissionable material in mass concentration and geometric configuration adapted to augment the neutron flow by a subcritical reaction, and an output region comprising a thermal neutron barrier substantially opaque to thermal neutrons but transmissive to epithermal neutrons, whereby an amplified neutron output is subcritically produced.”–In re Borst, 345 F.2d 851 (CCPA, 1965)
I thought this:
(Eventually I figured it out).
“The dichotomy between personal liberties and property rights is a false one. Property does not have rights. People have rights.”–Potter Stewart
