Applications of a Reactor

Used to determine the age of materials using irradiation anaylisis

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.
