Deeper insight into the features of a reactor as a source of antineutrinos is required for making further advances in studying the fundamental properties of the neutrino. The relationship between the thermal power of a reactor and the rate of the chain fission reaction in its core is analyzed. 
Flux and spectrum of reactor antineutrinos
In order to perform reactor experiments aimed at studying the nature of the neutrino and measurements in the realms of geo- and astrophysical neutrinos and to meet practical requirements in this
Reactor simulation for antineutrino experiments using DRAGON and MURE
Rising interest in nuclear reactors as a source of antineutrinos for experiments motivates validated, fast, and accessible simulations to predict reactor fission rates. Here we present results from
Industrial Reactor Power Monitoring Using Antineutrino Counts in the DANSS Detector
Detection of antineutrino by the reaction of the inverse β-decay can be used for an independent monitoring of a nuclear reactor power. DANSS detector is located directly under a commercial WWER-1000
Antineutrino and gamma emission from the OSIRIS research reactor
For the first time, the summation method has been coupled with a complete reactor model, in order to predict the antineutrino emission of a research reactor. This work, discussed in the first part of
Improved calculation of the energy release in neutron-induced fission
Fission energy is one of the basic parameters needed in the calculation of antineutrino ux from nuclear reactors. Improving the precision of ssion energy calculations is useful for current and future
Hard antineutrino source based on a lithium blanket: A version for the accelerator target
The β–-active 8Li isotope has a hard and well-defined antineutrino spectrum (E ν max= 13.0 MeV, E ν= 6.5 MeV) that ensures the reliable detection of the threshold reactions (ν e, p) and (ν e, d). An
