  Jordan Subcritical Reactor (JSA)
Bringing years of experience and education ‎to design and build Jordan subcritical ‎reactor ‎‎(JSA), as part of our nuclear infrastructure this is Jordan’s first nuclear facility. From the ‎dawn of the nuclear age Subcritical Reactors were an essential part of nuclear ‎engineering training & reactor laboratories around the world, this is how successful ‎nuclear nations built their nuclear programs, and moving Jordan into the nuclear age ‎requires vision and knowledge of how to get there.‎

The simple construction, low cost, and short construction time were the main driving ‎forces for creating this project, which meant having hands-on educational tool for teaching, ‎training and experimental research of nuclear engineering students and trainees.‎

This reactor is constructed at the Nuclear Engineering Department (NED) Jordan ‎University of Science and Technology (JUST), and will be used ‎mainly for the education ‎and training of ‎nuclear engineering students. ‎
It is one of the most effective tools for educating & training nuclear engineering students ‎& scientists, its simple construction (Fuel & Moderator) in an open tank, allows students ‎to change core configuration, work very close to the core, observe and see every part of ‎the reactor, and obtain a clear physical picture of the basic features of a reactor in a way ‎that is impossible in power or research reactors

The following Nuclear Experiments can be preformed using JSA:‎

1. Approach-to-Criticality Experiment

2. Axial Flux distribution measurement

3. Radial Flux distribution measurement

4. Absolute Flux measurement

5. Rossi-α method

6. Feynman-α method

7. Source-jerk Experiment

8. Fuel void Effect ‎

9. Control rod (poison) Effect
