MPhil Trip to Consort

It was through the medium of many practical experiments on the reactor and in the associated laboratories, that the theory of reactor physics we had been taught became clear in our minds. The staff at CONSORT were very patient with all our questions and very happy to clarify our understanding. We had a 100% of their attention and there was plenty of time not only for finishing tasks but also understanding everything fully.

We were also given the rare opportunity to get our hands dirty by taking actual measurements from the reactor and by carrying out simple experiments using radioactive materials. There were plenty of specialists on site with years of experience, who were all very approachable, and from whom we could get insights about the nuclear technology not available in textbooks or publications.Consort visit 2013

It is unfortunate that CONSORT will close at the end of the year and this type of experimental experience will then not be available for nuclear engineering and energy students in the UK.

Finally, a heartfelt thank you from us all for organising this event. It was an entire day of nuclear physics without any formulae or differential equations, which is exactly the way we like our physics!
