A nuclear reactor is a nuclear reactor or an atomic reactor, a device for carrying out nuclear reactions in a regulated and controlled manner. This device is used in laboratory sizes for the production of special isotopes of radioactive materials, as well as reactors for the production of electrical energy and the production of neutrons. The size and design of the reactor varies according to its work. The fission process in which a neutron is absorbed by a heavy nucleus (with a large mass) and then splits into two smaller nuclei with the release of energy and a few more neutrons.
