Based on a computer simulation of the neutron behavior in the various types of nuclear reactors, new concepts of reactor cores and related fuel-cycle scenarios are studied. Emphases are placed on the sustainability of the energy supply, the non-nuclear-proliferation, and the innovative next generation safety systems will be studied, as well as standard thermal-hydraulics such as LOCA studies. Applied nuclear physics, radiation therapy and the fusion systems are also under study.
Various radiation detectors and detection systems are developed using the alpha- and the gamma-radiations and the neutrons from nuclear reactors, accelerators, and radio isotopes. These are applied for a wide range of technologies from material analysis to imaging. Solutions of the radiative-waste problem are also envisaged.
In this course, based on seismic engineering and the technique of the probabilistic risk assessment, research of plant behavior of severe accident following the external events, such as earthquakes and extreme natural events, the safety measures for the severe accident and the crisis management including disaster prevention will be studied. Moreover, nuclear safety regulations and policies will be studied as well.
