Application By Michael Böttcher, Ph.D.
Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT),
Institute of Reactor Technology and Neutron Physics, Germany

Lead-Bismuth Eutectic or LBE is a eutectic alloy consisting of 45 percent lead and 55 percent bismuth. It is foreseen as a possible coolant for Generation IV nuclear reactor systems. The most interesting properties of LBE in comparison with lead and water are presented in Table 1. A principal advantage of LBE over lead is the low melting point of 125 °C, rather than lead's 327 °C. If the heat source in a nuclear system is shut down, then it is much easier to avoid freezing of the coolant.
