Description

This item was taken from the IEEE Conference ' Advances towards readily deployable antineutrino detectors for reactor monitoring and safeguards ' The large flux of neutrinos that leaves a nuclear reactor carries information about two quantities of interest for safeguards: the reactor power and fissile inventory. Our SNL/LLNL collaboration has demonstrated that antineutrino-based nuclear reactor monitoring is feasible using a relatively small cubic scale detector made of Gadolinium loaded liquid scintillator at tens of meters standoff from a commercial Pressurized Water Reactor, deployed in an underground gallery that lies directly under the containment.
