The first LION-AG active run started at 23:50 UTC on 7 April. The streaming data is available at
Plotly update is pretty slow, so be patient and it will eventually show the moving graph of temps and power.
The fuel load and core construction are as close to the LION-provided description as possible, but with added thermocouples for measurement of the core temperature. Five calibrations were performed, showing good stability and measurement accuracy of around ±5°C and ±3 watts at 800°C. The initial program is a 48-hour linear ramp from 100 C to 800 C, followed by a soak period or temperature cycling, depending on conditions at that time. Full details of the experimental setup will be made available shortly.
Images and data will be made available as the experiment progresses.
