Abstract : This paper relates to the study of swimming pool reactors in the light of their application. Their characteristics as a source of radiation, are highlighted. The available fluxes, superior to 10 to the thirteenth power n/cm2s, offer very great experimental possibilities. The influence of experimental programs on the basic concept of the swimming pool reactor is briefly examined.
