NPAC (Nuclear/Particle/Astro/Cosmo) Forum
Predicting Antineutrino Flux with DRAGON
Date: Thursday, October 21st
Time: 4:00 pm
Place: 4274 Chamberlin
Speaker: Christopher Jones, MIT
Abstract: Simulation of a nuclear reactor is extremely important for Double Chooz, an antineutrino experiment whose goal is to extract theta_{13}, and for noninvasive nuclear nonproliferation. An overview of Double Chooz and reactor physics will be given, along with a summary of reactor simulation efforts and code validation. The seminar will conclude with a discussion about the role of simulations in nonproliferation scenarios
Host: Stefan Westerhoff
