Title: Current Status and the Future of the Irradiation Services in the HANARO Reactor

Current Status and the Future of the Irradiation Services in the HANARO Reactor As a central plant of the Korea Atomic Energy Research Institute, Hi-flux Advanced Neutron Application Reactor, the HANARO, has been playing an important role in nuclear technology development and the utilization of radiation technology. HANARO's reputation such as a stable operation, build up of various research results and the support of the government picks up more research needs. Major utilizations of the HANARO reactor in Korea have focused on its irradiation service. It offers various types of irradiation tests for fuel and materials, which provides us with very useful information for designing and evaluating reactor materials. A number of irradiation capsules have been developed and installed in HANARO. Necessary technologies regarding HANARO are still being developed. The on-going and future researches, especially, about fuel and material irradiation including university programs and the current utilization statistics of the HANARO research reactor, are described in this article.
