Image Number 7 for United States Patent #4655989.

A fast breeder which is formed with a driver core region having an enriched nuclear fuel substance and allowing liquid metal acting as a coolant to pass therethrough and with a blanket region surrounding the periphery of the driver core region. A reactor stopping control rod to be inserted downward into the driver core region has an axially uniform density of boron-10.
