Applications of a Reactor

Applications of a Reactor

Used to determine the age of materials using irradiation analysis.

Neutron activation analysis
Used for quantitative multi-element analysis of major, minor, trace, and rare elements.

Plant Seed Mutagenesis
Used for gene knockout approach for plants.

Radioisotope Production
Used for the production of isotopes with applications in research, medicine, and technology.

Radiation hardness testing
Used to determine the effect of neutron radiation on materials, components, and instruments. This procedure is also used to harden components for use in applications where they may be exposed to neutrons.
