Experiences at TREAT

Dr. George Imel
Department of Physics, Nuclear and Electrical Engineering
Idaho State University

I worked at the TREAT facility from the early 1980's to the mid-1990's, as well as other facilities at Argonne National Laboratory-West.  In this seminar, I will present some basic physics of the unique reactor core that is TREAT, describe a couple of experiments in which I was directly responsible, and also along the way provide some insight to the operation of such a facility in a national laboratory.
