Oak Ridge National Laboratory 100 megawatt High Flux Isotope Reactor

Newest and largest of the six research reactors in operation at Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Tennessee is the 100 megawatt High Flux Isotope Reactor (HFIR). HFIR, which produces the world's highest neutron flux, is a key facility in the national program to produce and conduct research on man-made elements heavier than plutonium., Credit Line: Union Carbide Corporation's Nuclear Division, courtesy AIP Emilio Segrè Visual Archives, Physics Today Collection
