Description

Subcritical nuclear reactors, such as Mu*STAR, are driven by a proton accelerator to generate fissions that are primarily initiated by spallation neutrons from an internal target. The fission chain dies quickly over a few tens of ns, such that it is possible to have neutrinos produced in bunches that are separated by intervals that can be varied according to the accelerator proton RF frequency or any subharmonic of it. We discuss some of the options for this mode of operation and opportunities for experimental exploitation.
