Abstract

The HFR Petten is operated on behalf of the European Communities to perform irradiation experiments in cooperation with different research teams to support research and development in the fields of + nuclear fission energy, especially safety features + thermonuclear fusion, study of potential materials to be used in controlled fusion reactors + solid state and nuclear structure physics, fundamental research with neutron beams and additionally, + to produce radioisotopes for medical, industrial and agricultural applications + to perform neutron activation analyses for geological and environmental studies Management aspects, costs, availability, fields of utilization and experimental loading are described. Additionally, examples are given of ancillary facilities, like fast and thermal neutron radiography and a system for reencapsulation of pre-irradiated LMFBR fuel pins.
