Independent Measurement of θ13 via Neutron Capture on Hydrogen at Daya Bay
(Physical Review, 2014)
A new measurement of the θ13 mixing angle has been obtained at the Daya Bay Reactor Neutrino Experiment via the detection of inverse beta decays tagged by neutron capture on hydrogen. The antineutrino events for hydrogen ...
Evaluation of permutite for removal of radiocobalt from nuclear wastewater
(Journal of Radioanal Nucl Chem, 2014-07)
A synthetic zeolite, commercially available as permutite was tested for removing radiocobalt from aque- ous solutions by sorption. The sorption process was studied as a function of contact time, pH, ionic strength and solid ...
Simulation of (16)O (n, p) (16)N reaction rate and nitrogen-16 inventory in a high performance light water reactor with one pass core
(Applied Radiation and Isotopes; Elsevier, 2014-12)
The rate of activation of the isotope (16)O to (16)N in a typical HPLWR one pass concept was calculated using MCNP code. A mathematical model was used to track the inventory of the radioisotope (16)N in a unit mass of ...
