Absolute Neutron-Flux Measurement at Fast Pulse Reactors with Calibration against Californium-252

E. D. McGarry; A. H. Kazi; G. S. Davis; D. M. Gilliam IEEE Transactions on Nuclear Science, 1976

A new flux-transfer technique has been used to measure the total neutron flux to an accuracy of 5% at the Army Pulse Radiation Facility (APRF) fast pulse reactor. Use is made of 239Pu-loaded fission chambers developed by the National Bureau of Standards (NBS) and calibrated against a 252Cf source at NBS. Advantages of the method are that it uses a ...


TRIUMF ISAC RF system improvements after 2 years of operational experience

I. Bylinskii; Z. Ang; S. Fang; K. Fong; R. Kumaran; J. Lu; R. Poirier Proceedings of the 2003 Particle Accelerator Conference, 2003

The TRIUMF ISAC accelerator has been successfully operating since spring 2001 with very little downtime. The machine comprises 16 independent RF systems including a 35 MHz RFQ, a 106 MHz DTL and several sub-harmonic choppers and bunchers. The post stripper DTL enables fully variable output energy up to 1.5 MeV/u for rare isotopes with A/q<6 in cw mode. This sets ...


Cavity Ring-Down Spectroscopy for Gaseous Fission Products Trace Measurements in Sodium Fast Reactors

P. Jacquet; A. Pailloux; G. Aoust; J. -P. Jeannot; D. Doizi IEEE Transactions on Nuclear Science, 2014

Safety and reactor availability are key issues of the generation IV reactors. Hence, the three radionuclide confinement barriers, including the fuel pin cladding, must stay tight during the reactor operation. While manufacturing cladding failures evolve very slowly from a gaseous failure to an open failure, end of life and accidental failures may open very rapidly, generating a concerning situation. It ...

J. J. Burgerjon; A. S. Arrott; I. M. Thorson; T. L. Templeton; T. A. Hodges; R. E. Blaby; R. R. Langstaff IEEE Transactions on Nuclear Science, 1979

The beam stop for the 500 MeV, 100 μA beam from the TRIUMF cyclotron has been optimized to provide a variety of facilities for fundamental and applied research. These include: facilities for irradiating specimens with high-energy protons for research and for isotope production; facilities for irradiating specimens with neutrons of all energies from thermal to 500 MeV; and collimated neutron ...


Improvement in Thermal-Ionization Mass Spectrometry (TIMS) using Total Flash Evaporation (TFE) method for lanthanides isotope ratio measurements in transmutation targets

S. Mialle; A. Gourgiotis; M. Aubert; G. Stadelmann; C. Gautier; H. Isnard; F. Chartier 2011 2nd International Conference on Advancements in Nuclear Instrumentation, Measurement Methods and their Applications, 2011

The experiments involved in the PHENIX french nuclear reactor to obtain precise and accurate data on the total capture cross sections of the heavy isotopes and fission products require isotopic ratios measurements with uncertainty of a few per mil. These accurate isotopic ratio meaurements are performed with mass spectrometer equipped with multicollector system. The major difficulty for the analyses of ...

  • Constraining the Denudational Response to Faulting

    Denudation links tectonics with climate by changing topographic loads and promoting the drawdown of CO2. Measurements of denudation are a key to understanding this link. In particular, they are required to test and calibrate geodynamic models, to evaluate the tectonic control on landscape evolution, to quantify the geomorphic impact of faulting and seismicity, and to assess the role of tectonically driven denudation in stabilizing Earth's climate. We review techniques used to measure denudation, and weathering on timescales relevant to faulting and the dynamics of fault zones, with particular attention paid to the use of hydrometric data and cosmogenic isotopes. Using selected examples, we illustrate the application of these techniques to problems ranging from soil formation and coseismic erosion of earthquake epicentral areas to the erosion of orogens and estimation of catchment-scale erosion and weathering fluxes. The examples show that faulting is the Earth's premier erosion and weathering engine. Globally, erosion scales with tectonic forcing. Locally, fluvial incision and landscape lowering are correlated with faulting and seismic activity. Thus, tectonically active areas yield disproportionate amounts of sediment. Erosion refreshes rock surfaces in these areas, thereby enhancing chemical weathering rates and CO2 consumption. The effects of climate variability and change are evident in the patterns and rates of erosion and weathering. However, they are almost always superimposed on a stronger tectonic signal. We highlight the potential of cosmogenic nuclides to quantify present and past rates and patterns of denudation associated with faulting. Finally, we identify outstanding challenges for future work: (a) to characterize crustal deformation, climate, and denudation over their full range of time and length scales; (b) to analyze the geomorphic imp act and stratigraphic record of recent earthquakes; (c) to identify the processes, thresholds, and feedback mechanisms that control global weathering and regulate the long-term climate; and (d) to provide constraints that help to mitigate the risks associated with geomorphic processes triggered by earthquakes. Constraining the denudational response to faulting will help to meet these challenges.
