Integral measurements with a plutonium inert matrix fuel rod in a heterogeneous light water reactor lattice

As part of PSI's validatory efforts for neutronics calculations pertaining to inert matrix fuel (IMF) deployment in light water reactors, first-of-their-kind integral measurements have been carried out at the PROTEUS facility employing a specially fabricated Pu-Er-Zr IMF rod in a heterogeneous (boiling water reactor) test lattice. Analogous experiments have also been conducted with MOX and 'dummy' IMF rods, providing the basis for a systematic comparison of experimental and calculational results.
