1. Any substance used to slow down neutrons in nuclear reactors.
2. Someone who mediates disputes and attempts to avoid violence.
3. Someone who presides over a forum or debate.
In a nuclear reactor, a material such as graphite or heavy water used to reduce the speed of high-energy neutrons. Neutrons produced by nuclear fission are fast-moving and must be slowed to initiate further fission so that nuclear energy continues to be released at a controlled rate.
Slow neutrons are much more likely to cause fission in a uranium-235 nucleus than to be captured in a U-238 (nonfissile uranium) nucleus. By using a moderator, a reactor can thus be made to work with fuel containing only a small proportion of U-235.
