Gamma Irradiation Facility
Short-term gamma irradiations are performed in our spent fuel pool, utilizing gammas from fission product decay. Dose rates range from 10,000 to 100,000 rads/hr. Since no activation is produced in samples, an NRC byproduct license is not required. Many irradiations have been performed for high school science classes studying radiation effects on seed germination.
