Human resource development

Technological development towards the analysis at the Laboratory-1

In the analysis of radioactive waste, there are many subjects to be solved such as human errors due to the complex process and radiation exposure of analytical workers due to the long-time separation and purification. In order to solve such problems, we are conducting the technological developments such as the development of nuclear species analysis by inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ICP-MS) and the development of auto-analysis instruments.

We are also conducting the training on the method for treating the analytical facilities and various radioactive materials, in collaboration with the other institutes of JAEA (Nuclear Science Research Institute, Nuclear Fuel Cycle Engineering Laboratories, Oarai Research and Development Institute). Also, we are trying to improve the skill of the analytical technique through the training courses including outside of JAEA.
