THE PRINCESS PROJECT: FROM DIFFERENTIAL TO INTEGRAL EXPERIMENTS
Institut de Radioprotection et de Sûreté Nucléaire (IRSN) Fontenay-aux-Roses, 92262, France
Published online: 22 February 2021
Following the shutdown of the CEA Valduc experimental facilities, where, for more than 50 years, IRSN used to perform experiments related to criticality safety, IRSN initiated a new project named PRINCESS (PRoject for IRSN Neutron physics and Criticality Experimental data Supporting Safety). The objective is to continue collecting experimental data necessary for the IRSN missions in nuclear safety. For this purpose, collaborations with various national and international laboratories have been established. The PRINCESS project covers various nuclear physics fields from nuclear data to criticality-safety and reactor physics providing information to both differential and integral data improvements.
Key words: experiments / integral / differential / collaboration
