System message

It is general knowledge that research capability of nuclear reactor is closely tied to a power of this installation. The VR-1 reactor offers a great opportunity to any reactor/core physics research, such as criticality calculations or transient behaviour. Advanced reactor models are developed in different calculations codes, and now they can be successfully used for comparisons with any desirable code. An easy access to the reactor core, measuring channels, and set of radiation sources offer a good way for setting up an experiment for detector system validation. Even though the VR-1 reactor is limited by its low power which mainly affects material irradiation, there are still interesting topics that represent one of the main research directions at the VR-1 reactor, such as neutron activation analyses.
