  • Internet Reactor Laboratory

    Date: 2014-03-04 | The video details the development of the IAEA?s project for an Internet Reactor Laboratory. Through an internet connection, the control room and a research reactor itself can be linked visually to a distant classroom for the purpose of explaining reactor physics and conducting experiments interactively. As seen in the video, various procedures such as startups and shutdowns can be performed in collaboration between the reactor operator and students, who are then able to witness the results within the classroom. This activity, supported through the US Department of State?s Peaceful Uses Initiative, broadens the availability of a major application of research reactors, education and training, to Member States without a research reactor in order to train nuclear engineers and operators, and can be considered a cost-effective means to develop nuclear infrastructure for newcomer nuclear power programmes, as in Jordan. Indeed, the Internet Reactor Laboratory is under consideration for the purpose of regional cooperation in education and training using research reactors in Argentina and France. View Video →

  • Management of Spent Nuclear Fuel - Interview with Gary Dyck

    Date: 2013-10-09 | Probably the most famous form of radioactive waste, spent fuel from nuclear reactors must be safely, responsibly and sustainably managed. Gary Dyck, IAEA Department of Nuclear Energy, explains basic facts about spent nuclear fuel - how they are generated, volumes produced and Agency activities in support of efforts to ensure safety and sustainability throughout the entire nuclear fuel cycle.

  • Disposal of Radioactive Waste ? Interview with Irena Mele

    Date: 2013-10-09 | It is a widely held public misconception that disposal of radioactive waste is an unsolvable problem. Irena Mele, IAEA Department of Nuclear Energy, dispels this mistaken notion, clarifying existing solutions and describing IAEA activities to assist Member States in this area. View Video →

  • Safe Storage of Disused Sources - Interview with Vilmos Friedrich

    Date: 2013-05-22 | The IAEA helps its Member States find long-term solutions for the safe and secure storage of disused sealed radioactive sources. Mr Vilmos Friedrich, a radioactive waste expert in the Nuclear Fuel and Waste Technology Division, explains the issues (3:18 min) View Video →
