Moderator temperature coefficient of reactivity The term 'Moderator temperature coefficient of reactivity' as it applies to the area of nuclear science can be defined as ' As the moderator (water) increases in temperature, it becomes less dense and slows down fewer neutrons, which results in a negative change of reactivity. This negative temperature coefficient acts to stabilize atomic power reactor operations. '.
