Description

The mission of the Centre for Energy Research is to perform research and development in the field of nuclear science and technology for facilitating the adoption and the safe use of nuclear technology in Hungary, to participate in international research efforts aiming at the establishing a new generation of nuclear power plants and closing the fuel cycle.

The aim of this event is a visit of Budapest Research Reactor which has been utilized as a neutron source for research and various industrial and medical applications. Irradiations are performed in vertical channels (the reactor has now more than 40 channels that can be used for isotope production and material testing) whereas physical experiments are carried out at the horizontal neutron beam ports.

In the frame of satellite event „Ceramics and composites design, processing and properties to their performance in harsh nuclear environments „ scientists can get access to the BRR experimental facilities with some interesting presentations not only of novel ceramic based materials.
