Laboratory for Reactor Physics and Systems Behaviour

The LRS as a laboratory of the Energy and Safety Division (NES) of the Paul Scherrer Institut (PSI) is engaged in both analytical and experimental R&D related to the operation of current and future nuclear power plants. Its strategic goal is to strengthen the sustainability of nuclear power via research along the following two principal lines
  • Improved understanding of the complex phenomenology of nuclear safety,
  • Physics of complete fuel cycle closure in the context of plutonium management and waste reduction.
