Activities of Nuclear Data and Reactor Engineering Division

We, nuclear data and reactor engineering division, are tackling with "accuracy improvement of nuclear data", "development of nuclear code system for simulating neutron transport and reaction in a nuclear reactor etc." and "advancement of nuclear measurement technologies for precise quantification of nuclear material non-destructively". These nuclear data, code, and measurement technologies are indispensable for solving important nuclear engineering issues, that is, improving safety, efficiency and nuclear security and reducing a risk by a long-lived nuclear waste, which should be developed for extending peaceful nuclear energy utilization. For our researches, we are utilizing the most advanced facilities such as J-PARC in Tokai-mura, and also collaborating with various institutes and universities both inside and outside of Japan.

The nuclear data, code, and measurement technologies are also expected to be utilized in not only nuclear engineering field but also various fields such as nuclear medical science, RI use, astrophysics, new material development, non-destructive analysis, and fundamental physics, etc. Actually, some new joint researches have already been started. It is our pleasure to be able to contribute to the advancements of various nuclear science and engineering fields. We should appreciate very much if we could receive your interests, suggestions, and cooperation.
