Abstract:

A fast-neutron nuclear research reactor was put into operation by the Joint Institute of Nuclear Research, Dubna. Claimed to be the first of its kind, the reactor operates periodically in a supercritical state, achieved by providing the reactor with a movable core in addition to the stationary one. The movable core is made of uranium 235 in the form of a bushing pressed into a rotating disk. Author
