The article considers the problem of forming a neutron field in the experimental channels of the water-cooled research reactors. Using the software package MCU5 we calculated a neutron field in different moderators which the experimental channel passes through. It is shown that the most appropriate moderator for neutron transmutation doping is the beryllium. The optimal location of the channel in the moderator was determined.
