  • Internet Reactor Laboratory

    Date: 2014-03-04 | The video details the development of the IAEA's project for an Internet Reactor Laboratory. Through an internet connection, the control room and a research reactor itself can be linked visually to a distant classroom for the purpose of explaining reactor physics and conducting experiments interactively. As seen in the video, various procedures such as startups and shutdowns can be performed in collaboration between the reactor operator and students, who are then able to witness the results within the classroom. This activity, supported through the US Department of State?s Peaceful Uses Initiative, broadens the availability of a major application of research reactors, education and training, to Member States without a research reactor in order to train nuclear engineers and operators, and can be considered a cost-effective means to develop nuclear infrastructure for newcomer nuclear power programmes, as in Jordan. Indeed, the Internet Reactor Laboratory is under consideration for the purpose of regional cooperation in education and training using research reactors in Argentina and France. View Video →
