Activities of Nuclear and LWR Engineering Division

We, Nuclear and LWR 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." ,"advancement of nuclear measurement technologies for precise quantification of nuclear material non-destructively" and “systematic research and development for simulating thermal-hydraulic events”. These developed technologies are indispensable for solving important nuclear engineering issues, that is, continuous safety improvement , enhancement of nuclear security technology and reduction of 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 results of our research activities 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.
