Title: AQUEOUS HOMOGENEOUS TYPE RESEARCH REACTORS

Abstract

The solution-type research reactors placed in operation by Atomics International fall into three power range categories. The 50-kw type has the advantages of a large graphite refiector, both horizontal and vertical thermal columns, and gamma ray exposure facilities in its sub-pile area. The 1.5-kw reactor has a 5 1/2 -foot square vertical thermal column for exponential work. The 10 watt unit is intended as a training and minimum research facility. These reactors and their operating characteristics are described. (M.H.R.)
