Abstract

The present article provides a brief description of a fast reactor which is in operation and of its basic experimental equipment. The reactor is designed for studying various materials and for technological and physical investigations. Its over-all rated power level is 5000 kw. The article also provides the characteristics which illustrate the experimental possibilities of the device as a source of fast and slow neutrons and also the results obtained in investigating the spectrum of neutrons in the reactor core, the reflector, and the experimental devices (beams, channels, and the thermal column). The obtained data are compared with the calculated values.
