Abstract

When these thermocouples are exposed to a neutron flux, the thermoelements transmute, leading to large and unknown drifts in output. In addition it is impossible to routinely recalibrate the thermocouples after irradiation for obvious reasons of safety. To alleviate this problem both LNE-Cnam and NPL have developed, via differing approaches, in-situ calibration methods for the thermocouples.
