The Nuclear Engineering department and the University of Tennessee-Knoxville moved into the new, state-of-the-art Zeanah Engineering Complex in Fall, 2021. This move has more than tripled the department's footprint on campus with 27 new teaching and research laboratories. The Fast Neutron Source (FNS) is being designed and built in a heavily shielded area. FNS is a subcritical system with a reconfigurable design to mimic the neutron spectrum expected in a variety of advanced reactor systems, including sodium-, molten salt-, or lead-cooled reactors. In addition to the FNS, this tour will include other laboratory spaces focused on operations and maintenance, instrumentation and control, nuclear safety, and nuclear security.
