In the Author's Words

One of the leading designs for the next generation of nuclear fission reactors is a sodium-moderated fast reactor. Before such reactors can come online, it is necessary to understand how neutrons, which are prevalent in the reactor environment, interact with Na, especially in what is the fast neutron energy region between about 1 and 20 MeV. The cross sections, or reaction probabilities of neutrons with Na, investigated in this research are important not only for the design of the next-generation reactors, but they also help us better understand the nuclear force across a wide energy range.
