This course will cover the basic concepts involved in the design and operation of nuclear reactors. Students will build an understanding of how nuclear reactors work and how they relate to nuclear weapons. The course will cover how various designs are more or less proliferation resistant and how reactors use and produce nuclear material. This course is strongly recommended for students considering taking the J-Term practicum held at the Czech Technical University’s VR-1 “Sparrow” research reactor.
