Abstract

The goal of this qualifying project was to investigate the output of neutron radiation by the new fast neutron facilities at the University of Massachusetts, Lowell Research Reactor. This was done by using Monte Carlo-based radiation transport simulation software to prepare a set of dosimetric studies that were later carried out at the Lowell fast neutron facilities. A linear relationship between reactor power and particle output was found.
