MIR History

The plan to develop a new initiative in basic fluid mechanics research at Idaho National Laboratory (INL) began in 1993. As a result of this process, the large matched index of refraction (MIR) flow system was completed in 1998 and located at Test Area North (TAN).  The entire flow system was moved to the INL Engineering Demonstration Facility on the Research and Education Campus in Idaho Falls in 2000.
