Saclay Nuclear Research Centre

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Saclay Nuclear Research Centre.
Saclay Nuclear Research Centre.

The Saclay Nuclear Research Centre is one of nine laboratories belonging to the Commissariat à l'énergie atomique (CEA), which hosts the administrative headquarters of the CEA and a major national laboratory. It is the heart of French nuclear research since Frederic Joliot-Curie founded it after the Second World War.[1] Its campus was designed by the architect Auguste Perret.[citation needed]

It is now part of a confederation with University of Paris-Saclay, along with CentraleSupélec, CNRS, Ecole polytechnique, HEC Paris, IHES, etc.

Saclay Nuclear Research Centre research

The complex employs 5,000 scientists and is located in the Essonne department of northern France, south of Paris on the Saclay plateau.[citation needed]

The research carried out ranges from fundamental research to applied research and, thanks to the Orpheus research reactor, lasers and magnetic resonance research into the State of Matter.

Research at Saclay is focussed on different topics:

  • Applied nuclear research: Research is carried out to optimise current and future French nuclear reactors using the Osiris experimental reactor and the Tamaris earthquake simulation laboratory as well as further research into nuclear waste management.
  • Technology research: Research into IT systems used in nuclear installations, man-machine interface as well as sensor technology.
  • Health research: Research into the effects of radioactivity on living cells and molecules, protein engineering and Medical imaging.
  • Environmental research: Research into the effects of climate change and greenhouse gases.
  • Fundamental Research.

Institut national des sciences et techniques nucléaires (INSTN)

The centre also houses the Institut national des sciences et techniques nucléaires (National Institute for Nuclear Science and Technology) which is dedicated to the academic and professional training in the field of atomic energy.
