Based on the 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 energy supply, the non-nuclear-proliferation and the safety. 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 the wide range of technologies from material analysis to imaging.
Solutions of the radiative-waste problem are also envisaged.
In this course, wide nuclear safety research and education programs are prepared. After most imporatant phenomena related LWR operation are studied, topical informations focusing on the operational plant maintenance and innovative next generation safety systems will be studeied as well as standard thermal-hydraulics such as LOCA studies.
Technical fields in this course are so wide that both nuclear energy course and applied radiation technology course are closely conjugated.
Through LWR safety study completion, potential engineers and researchers with their own opinions are planned to be graduated.
Nuclear safety regulations and policies are studied.
