This publication is a comprehensive study that reviews the current situation in a great number of applications of research reactors. It revises the contents of IAEA TECDOC-1234, The Applications of Research Reactors, giving detailed updates on each field of research reactor uses worldwide. Operations with reactors of all sizes and capabilities can benefit from the sharing of current practices and research enabled via this updated publication, which describes the requirements for among others, neutron activation analysis, education and training, neutron scattering and neutron imaging, silicon doping and radioisotope production, and material/fuel irradiation and testing. Operators of underutilized research reactors can learn how to diversify their technical capabilities, services and products. The publication also addresses current issues facing the vast majority of research reactors by including sections describing user and customer relations as well as strategic planning considerations.
