The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Center for Neutron Research operates a 20 MW research reactor whose primary purpose is to produce cold neutrons for material sciences experiments. On February 3rd, 2021, a fuel element was unlatched

Quantifying Reactor Power Noise - A Case Study on NIST Research Reactor

May 26, 2023
Anil Gurgen, Dagistan Sahin, James R. Whipple
Water cooled reactors experience reactivity changes when voids are present in the coolant. The fraction of coolant in the core diminutions in the event of boiling, and the reactivity feedback can either be positive due to reducing neutron absorption in the

Radiation Monitoring System Upgrade for the NBSR

May 25, 2023
James R. Whipple, Dagistan Sahin, Yehonatan Zino
The Radiation Monitoring System (RMS) at the NIST Center for Neutron Research (NCNR) Reactor (National Bureau of Standards Reactor – NBSR) has demonstrated reliability issues due to outdated hardware and lack of vendor support. The existing radiation
