    Abstract

    The Low-Temperature Neutron Irradiation Facility (LTNIF) is now operating at Oak Ridge National Laboratory. The facility provides high radiation intensities and special environmental and testing conditions for qualified experiments at no cost to users. A general description and major specifications of the LTNIF are presented along with the results of performance tests. In addition, the hardware and other considerations required to perform experiments in the LTNIF are described.
