Cooperative Major in Nuclear Energy

The Division of Cooperative Major in Nuclear Energy offers extensive study and research programs implemented in a rich academic environment. Exploring three core areas (nuclear engineering, nuclear safety and radiation engineering), students extend their study and research interest in the following areas: reactor physics, nuclear plant engineering, nuclear fuels/materials engineering, nuclear safety engineering, nuclear seismic engineering, nuclear fuel cycle engineering, radiation measurement engineering and accelerator engineering.

We are committed to cultivating nuclear engineers and researchers able to develop expertise and practical skills. Extended opportunities for nuclear study and research are offered to students in Ozenji Campus Atomic Energy Research Laboratory, where they focus on specialized areas including accelerator engineering, back-end (Nuclear Fuel Cycle and Environment) engineering and nuclear decommissioning engineering, all of which are of vital importance for the development and applications of future nuclear technology.

Associate Professor

  1. (1) Development of simpler treatment process for radwastes Three types of radwastes generated by the basic process developments are targetted. One is salt wastes generated by development of pyrochemical treatment. We choose precipitation and distillation technique. Second is zirconium enriched solution generated by the treatment of fuel debris. We have tested zeolite adsorption. Third is analytical solution containing ammonium nitrates. We choose distillation technique.
  2. (2) Structural analysis for radwastes volumetric reduction process Various extractants embedded silica matrix for separation between minor actinides and rare earths have been investigated. The aim of this study is reduction of environmental burden in vitrification glass. Stabilization of glass matrix has also evaluated, e.g. molybdenum enriched phase, iron phosphate glasses, and fine alloy of noble metals. Multiprobe analysis has been applied for this purpose.
  3. (3) Migration of fission products at severe accident For decomissioning of F1, distribution of fission products should be identified. We have focused on cesium migration and elucidated the penetration mechanism into concrete. Recently strontium is also focused additionally. Radioactive cesium in the lake sadiments also has been focused to elucidate the mechanism of adsorption and desorption. Pyrochemical treatement of simulated fuel debris has been under development.
  1. Development of image processing method to significantly improve the energy resolution of WDS-PIXE
