Databases and Resources
Research Reactor Database (RRDB)
The Research Reactor Database (RRDB) provides extensive information on research reactors all over the world. It is a combination of two individual databases: one that provides profiles of research reactors (both operational and shut down), and the other that compiles fuel information. The research reactor section of the database contains technical specifications and utilization information to assist potential users of research reactors. The fuel cycle section of the database is not publically accessible, but general reports on fuel information are compiled from the database. Both databases are populated and updated by officially nominated facility data providers (FDPs) who are typically located at the reactor.
Research Reactor Ageing Database (RRADB)
The Ageing Database is intended to assist interested Member States share information and experiences specific to the management of technical issues related to ageing as well as the development and implementation of comprehensive ageing management programmes. The Research Reactor Ageing Database includes operating experience summaries for various ageing related challenges and programmatic approaches to ageing management. The information is searchable by research reactor system and ageing mechanism. Contact details for responsible facility managers are included in each summary to permit users to obtain additional details directly. The database requires a user ID and password; to obtain one, contact the Research Reactor Section. To submit a report to the Ageing Database, download this template, and send it to the Research Reactor Section.
The Database of Ion Beam, Spallation Neutron and Synchrotron Light Sources in the World (Managed by the Dept of Nuclear Sciences and Applications)
The Database of Ion Beam, Spallation Neutron Sources and Synchrotron Light Sources in the World contains technical information on accelerator-based radiation facilities used for applied research and analytical services in IAEA Member States. The database is compiled using information publicly available from IAEA databases, research institutes in Member States and accelerator manufacturers.The database organises the accelerator-based radiation facilities into three categories: low-energy electrostatic (ion beam) accelerators, spallation neutron sources and synchrotron light sources. Included are geographical maps of the global distribution of these facilities and as well as individual entries in Member States.
