Abstract:
An electronic system was designed to receive a signal from a Self Powered Neutron Detector (SPND) and measure the initial period (e-folding time) of the TRIGA reactor at the University of Arizona. The design and fabrication of the SPND used was part of this work. The electronic system together with the SPND were used to construct a reactivity worth calibration curve for the transient rod based on pulse measurements.
