Released in 2009, the Serpent Monte Carlo code has established itself as a highly efficient and powerful simulation code for nuclear systems analysis. Originally developed for reactor physics applications, the scope of the code now extends to coupled multi-physics simulations and radiation transport. The latter has allowed adoption of the code by t…


The accurate modelling of the activation of flowing material in a fusion reactor, such as coolant water or lithium-lead breeder, has important safety and shielding implications. Two codes developed at UKAEA which account for neutron flux variation have been investigated for the potential for incorporating computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and c…

Spectrum unfolding is a key tool used together with diagnostics in the determination of nuclear fields that are associated with a range of nuclear technologies spanning fusion, fission, nuclear medicine and accelerator domains. The underlying process requires a mathematical method for solving the Fredholm integral equation of the first kind. This p…

This paper reports new activities conducted as part of the JET technology programme under the WP-JET3 ACT sub-project collaboration. The aim of the sub-project is to take advantage of the significant 14 MeV neutron fluence expected during JET operations to irradiate samples of materials that will used in the manufacturing of main ITER tokamak compo…
