Fast breeder reactor
A schematic of the two types of liquid metal fast breeder reactor (LMFBR), a fast neutron reactor designed to breed fuel by producing more fissile material than it consumes. FBRs are used in nuclear power plants to produce nuclear power from nuclear fuel. LMFBRs are cooled by liquid sodium, but other metals have been used in the past.
