    Research outputpeer-review


    In some nuclear reactors the core is intended to be cooled by means of liquid metal, for example, lead-bismuth eutectic alloy. For safety and licensing reasons, an imaging method of the interior of reactor has thus to be developed. The paper is devoted to development of ultrasonic imaging and measurement technique suitable for performance in the liquid Pb/Bi alloy.
