Title: Nuclear Science User Facility: Overview of Neutron Irradiation Activities

Abstract

The Nuclear Science User Facilities (NSUF), established in 2007 as the Advanced Test Reactor (ATR) National Scientific User Facility is chartered to provide cost-free access to unique and important research and development capabilities and infrastructure to nuclear energy-focused researchers. Users can apply for access to any of the NSUF INL or partner facilities using the same process, either through the annual Office of Nuclear Energy Consolidated Innovative Nuclear Research funding announcement or the NSUF Rapid Turnaround Experiment (RTE) opportunities, offered three times each year. The NSUF has several research and test reactors available as well as ion beamlines and x-ray light sources for experimental use in support of the R&D objectives of the DOE Office of Nuclear Energy. This presentation reviews the current capabilities, needs, awarded irradiation experiments and potential use in FY 2018.
