Serbia[edit]

Research reactors[edit]

  • Vinca Nuclear Institute, Vinča
    • RA - Reaktor A (1956–2002) - 6.5 MW heavy water moderated and cooled research reactor
    • RB - Reaktor B (1958-...) - At the very beginning the RB reactor was designed and constructed as an unreflected zero power heavy water - natural uranium critical assembly. First criticality was reached in April 1958. Later, the 2% enriched metal uranium fuel and 80% enriched UO2 fuel were obtained and used in the reactor core. Modifications of the reactor control, safety and dosimetry systems (1960, 1976, 1988) converted the RB critical assembly to a flexible heavy water reflected experimental reactor with 1 W nominal power, operable up to 50 W. Several coupled fast-thermal systems were designed and constructed at RB reactor in the early 1990s, for the research in fast reactors physics.

Under decommission orders or license amendments[edit]

(These research and test reactors are authorized to decontaminate and dismantle their facility to prepare for final survey and license termination.)

With possession-only licenses[edit]

(These research and test reactors are not authorized to operate the reactor, only to possess the nuclear material on-hand. They are permanently shut down.)
