To develop and apply high precision nuclear measurement techniques and to prepare carefully defined nuclear samples which are distributed to national laboratories, for nuclear measurements and for the calibration of analytical techniques.
AbstractThe programme was drawn up in accordance with the Council Resolution of 17 December 1970 concerning the procedures for adopting research and training programmes (Official Journal No L 16 of 20.1.1971).
These activities were the task of the Central Bureau for Nuclear Measurements (CBNM) at Geel.
Changes to the programme were undertaken in response to new demands, notably the application of the available skills to the problems of safeguarding nuclear fuel and to the preparation and characterization of some reference materials for non-nuclear applications. The nuclear data are primarily applied in the fields of reactor development and the industrial and medical uses of isotopes. The data also leads to better understanding of the properties of nuclei.
- Neutron metrology for the measurement of neutron cross-sections and standards;
- Nuclear metrology for the measurement of standards and constants associated with the decay of radionuclides, dosimetry and measurement of isotopic composition;
- Preparation and definition of standard specimens and nuclear reference materials.
ImplementationThe Commission, assisted by the board of governors of the Joint Research Centre (JRC), was responsible for the implementation of the programme by means of the services of the JRC (Geel).
