Abstract

The reactor has operated at power levels ranging from 58 to 88 MW; the
highest value of thermal neutron flux attained is 9. 1014 n.cm-2.s-1, and
the fast neutron flux (E> 0.1 MeV) reached a level of 7.1014 n.cm-2.s-1.
The experimental load increased considerably between 1969 and 1973,
the rise being reflected by an average occupation of 76 channels at the
end of the period compared with 45 in 1968.
The reactor has been used for development programmes concerning fast reactors, gas-cooled reactors, light water reactors and homogeneous reactors, as well as for applied research on fissile materials, structural materials and nuclear transmutations, for radioisotopes production, for pilot scale gamma irradiations, for basic research in nuclear and solid state physics, and for neutron radiography.
