Shanzhai Reactor

Shan Zhai Reactor

“Shan Zhai” is a popular word in Chinese. Invented in 2008 from “shan zhai cell phone”, it means copycat, fast, and popularization. A MediaTek Inc. chip makes “shan zhai cell phone” possible. It integrates almost all common advanced functions of a cell phone, and can be customized simply by software. A lot of tiny companies, many of them are underground or in gray zone, started to produce cell phone with this chip and models copying from large company products. This word extends to other area soon, e.g. shan zhai star in a TV show, means that a player is widely supported because she looks very like a famous actress.

Last weekend IHEP had a 2-day strategic workshop to discuss the future plans. Accelerator Driven Sub-critical System (ADS) is one of them. IHEP director Prof. Hesheng Chen mentioned a new scheme ADTR by Prof. Rubia, i.e. Accelerator Driven Thorium Reactor. IHEP is the leader of accelerator technology in China, has completed a R&D project on ADS, but has no experience on building reactor. Prof. Chen said, “we should not try to build Shan Zhai reactor ourselves”.

山寨反应堆

“山寨”一词大约2008年起源于山寨手机,其主要特点为仿造性、快速化、平民化,并迅速成为一个在中国广为流行的语汇。
上周末高能所开了一次为期两天的战略研讨会,讨论高能所未来的发展规划。加速器驱动的清洁核能源是其中一个很有吸引力的发展方向。陈和生所长介绍了Rubia最近提出的一个新方案ADTR,即加速器驱动的钍反应堆。高能所在加速器方面无疑是国内的领导者,并且进行了ADS(加速器驱动的次临界洁净核能系统)的预研究,但是在反应堆方面没有经验。陈和生说“我们不会去搞山寨反应堆”。
