Research Areas

The disposal of high-level radioactive wastes from nuclear power plants is a problem considered to be one of the most important issues at both national and international levels. As a fundamental solution to the problem, the establishment of nuclear transmutation technology where long-lived nuclides can be changed to short-lived or stable ones will be vital.. Progress in R & D in the transmutation of long-lived fission products (LLFP) in the nuclear wastes however, has been slow. Our group aims to obtain reaction data of LLFP at RIBF and other facilities which may lead to a new discovery and invention for peaceful use of nuclear power and the welfare of humanity.
