About us

This facility was founded to conduct basic research in nuclear power. A small reactor for research started operation in January 1968 and had been used for research for the enhancement of the safety of reactors, cancer treatment using neutrons, super-microelement analysis, etc. In 1975, it became a shared facility among public and private universities nationwide, receiving support from the government, and had been used by many researchers and students. The reactor stopped operation in 1989, and all the fuel was carried out after its abolishment was decided in 2003. In 2008, the Department of Nuclear Safety Engineering was established based on past experience and achievements and has been using the important facility and equipment to foster nuclear engineers.
