Lab Facility

The Neutron Metrology Laboratory is currently under construction and, once completed, will be a neutron experimental facility for both NPRE students and researchers in NPRE and elsewhere. The lab is equipped with a Cf-252 source and a D-T neutron generator with an emission rate of ~1E7 and ~1E8 neutrons/s, respectively. The neutron flux density will be well-characterized in energy and intensity employing various instruments, including multisphere spectrometers, ionization chambers, long counters, and scintillators, calibrated to primary reference standards.
