Neutron and gamma radiation testing at the Jozef Stefan Institute, Ljubljana

Last week the Innovate UK ReDRESS team has successfully irradiated three different ultrasound transducer technologies with gammas and neutrons at the Jozef Stefan Institute TRIGA nuclear research reactor. The goal is to demonstrate the levels of radiation resilience for non destructive testing in the nuclear industry. Detailed simulations are also being performed by the University of Sheffield to establish the neutron and gamma fluences inside the devices under test, as well as quantities such as total ionising dose, neutron kerma, and DPA. The results will be published.
