Reduction of the reactivity of a reactor by very high neutron capture in the fission product Xe-135.
The increase in Xe-135 concentration after the shutdown of a reactor
- Xe-135 is generated by the decay of the precursor nuclide I-135 with
a half-life of 6.6 hours - may have the effect that the reactor cannot
be restarted until the decay of the Xe-135 concentration - the maximum
of Xe-135 concentration is reached after about 12 hours.
