The irradiation experimental device is designed by surveying analytically an irradiation condition to improve the neutron flux distribution of the radial direction on NTD-Si by using neutron transportation calculation Monte Carlo calculation code MCNP5 in order to develop neutron irradiation technology for the large-diameter silicon to 12 inches diameter at the maximum and an irradiation experiment will be performed in JRR-4. Thus the validity of the design technique of the irradiation device will be confirmed by this experiment. The irradiation experimental device is installed in the side of the core tank outer wall. A 12 inches silicon ingot of 60cm in height is irradiated in a reflector cover which surrounds the silicon ingot for increasing the flux. The silicon ingot is rotated during irradiation in order to require the condition of uniformly distributed thermal neutron flux over whole circumferences. A uniform irradiation condition was achieved by the pass-through core method, in which silicon ingot moved up and down with rotating. The condition was satisfied when silicon was covered with the thermal neutron filter, which is made from aluminum alloy of thickness of 2mm with natural boron element ratio of 1.5%, and was moved in the range from -42mm to 22mm for the center of the reactor core. The deviation of the Si-30 neutron absorption reaction rate was range from -3.2% to +5.3% in the intermediate volume of 40cm height and the neutron absorption reaction ratio of the circumference to the center was within 1.09 in the volume.
