At the Advanced Science Research Center (ASRC), based on the "ASRC Initiative", we develop new fields of science and technology making full use of facilities and experiences of the JAEA.
J-PARC (J-PARC Center) is the world-class proton accelerator facility operated by High Energy Accelerator Research Organization (KEK) and Japan Atomic Energy Agency (JAEA).
The Nuclear Science and Engineering Research Center conducts basic studies to produce scientific knowledge and technologies for supporting the nuclear energy utilization and for innovative nuclear technologies.
The Nuclear Science Research Institute is an important R&D base where valuable research facilities, such as the research reactor and accelerator.」
We develop precise measurement techniques of neutron and synchrotron radiation, and, by complementary use of them, we research structure and functions of the advanced materials for future. Our R&D contribute to the enhancement of material science as well as industrial competitiveness.
At the Oarai Research & Development Center, the JMTR will be able to contribute in many areas such as safety research for LWRs, radioisotopes production for industrial use and educational training of nuclear energy. Safety demonstration tests of the HTTR started in March 2002 to show inherent safety features of the HTGRs and to establish new consideration for safety design and evaluation methods.
Aiming at Practical Applications of Safe and Environment-friendly Nuclear Reactor with various heat utilizations
