Publications, 25 January 2021

We offer to your attention a preprint «JINR Research Reactors: A Look into the Future» P3-2020-31 published by the JINR Publishing Department. The authors are V. L. Aksenov, M. V. Rzjanin, E. P. Shabalin.

The concept of a new pulsed reactor IBR-3 (“Neptun”) is presented, which in terms of its parameters is superior to the existing pulsed sources, as well as to those which are being constructed, for research on extracted beams. A scientific program, the implementation of which is difficult or impossible with existing sources, as well as the infrastructure for supporting experiments, is briefly discussed.

The investigation has been performed at the Frank Laboratory of Neutron Physics of JINR.
