Imaging allows a look inside nuclear reactors

10/24/2013 | Chemical & Engineering News

A noninvasive technique that uses nuclear magnetic resonance imaging produces thermal maps with "millimeter spatial and high thermal resolution" inside nuclear reactor vessels. The method developed by a team of researchers at the University of California, Los Angeles, is designed to allow engineers to tweak reactor geometry and dimensions and tailor catalyst distribution for a variety of purposes, including better energy efficiency.
