Reactor Centre

The Reactor Centre at Imperial College London was created to provide a national resource for research neutrons. It commenced operation in 1965, and was originally built for the University of London, before being run by Imperial College. The Reactor Centre provides facilities for the University and other educational institutions to be used for teaching and research in many fields of nuclear science and technology such as reactor physics, reactor engineering, neutron physics, solid state physics, radiochemistry and activation analysis. The Reactor Centre also provides radioisotopes for use in other laboratories.
