pulsed reactor

pulsed reactor

[′pəlst rē′ak·tər]
(nucleonics)
A research nuclear reactor in which continual short, intense surges of power and radiation can be produced; the neutron flux during the surge is much higher than could be tolerated during steady-state operation.

The most important characteristic of a pulsed reactor is the relative dispersion of pulse energy fluctuations:

Here we describe specifics of the direct nn-scattering measurement which is under preparation at the unique aperiodic pulsed reactor YAGUAR.
The nn scattering measurements at the pulsed reactor YAGUAR will be performed by the TOF method.
