Oregon State University

OSU Radiation CenterThe NE/RHP Department has unique facilities housed within the Oregon State University Radiation Center. The 47,000 square foot Radiation Center (RC) serves the entire Oregon State University campus as well as other Oregon universities and numerous institutions of higher education throughout the nation.

Housed within the RC are the:

  • TRIGA Reactor (a 1.1 MWth nuclear reactor with pulsing capability up to 2500 MWth),*
  • The Advanced Plant Experiment (APEX), which is a three story test facility to assess the safety systems of Westinghouse's next generation of nuclear power plants),*
  • A Gammacell 220 kilocurie-level gamma source for irradiation studies,*
  • A radiochemistry laboratory (TRUELAB - Laboratory of Transuranic Elements),*
  • A radioecology laboratory performing activation and radiotracer studies on ecological models (soil, plants, etc.),*
  • Lecture and teaching laboratories (C104 and C123) which are equipped with traditional teaching equipment (wipe boards, projectors, computer-based projection capabilities, etc.), and are also networked for off-campus viewing and/or archiving lectures and courses for future review (Blackboard system),
  • Computing services - which include campus-wide student networks (including OSU email, general software applications, printing, wireless internet, etc.), as well as Engineering-specific computing resources (including Engr email, computational facilities and computer laboratories located in A124 and B130).
  • Library in the Radiation Center (A124) which houses related journals such as "Medical Physics," "Health Physics," and "Physics Today" among the many other titles present,
  • Valley Library (OSU main campus) is a large, state of the art facility in the heart of the campus, which houses 6 levels of books/journals/references, as well as access to electronic journals, borrowing services from other institutions, and microfilm copies of in-house and world-wide academic publications.
