MYRRHA: A Flexible and Fast Spectrum Irradiation Facility

    Research outputpeer-review


    MYRRHA (Multi-purpose hYbrid Research Reactor for High-tech Applications) is a multipurpose research facility currently being developed at SCK•CEN. MYRRHA is based on the ADS (Accelerator Driven System) concept where a pro-ton accelerator, a spallation target and a subcritical reactor are coupled. MYRRHA will be able to work in both critical as subcritical modes, enabling the facility to target a broad range of R&D applications. In this paper, the most recent developments of the design of the MYRRHA facili-ty are presented, as well as the irradiation performance of MYRRHA
