High Energy Physics
Key words: Fundamental Studies, Isotopes Production, Nuclear Medicine Development, Fuel Elements Testing, Construction Materials Testing, Testing of New Equipment and Nuclear Technologies of Generation IV, Solutions for Closing of Fuel Cycle.
The main goal is to develop and implement next-generation nuclear energy systems
To provide irradiation experiments, the reactor facility is designed with the following necessary equipment and instrumentation:
• pick-and-place mechanisms and machines for loading and reloading experimental devices and loop facilities;
• stands for washing and storing various kinds of experimental devices and loop facilities with controlled temperature conditions;
• research stands in the spent fuel pool for detecting fuel cladding failure and for carrying out tests simulating conditions of deteriorating heat dissipation.
• research safety hot cells with equipment and facilities for assembly and disassembly of irradiation devices, as well as for initial investigations (geometrical measurements of irradiated samples, filming and photography, gamma scanning, measurements of corrosion thickness).
