Japan Atomic Energy Agency executed the irradiation examination of the MA content mixed oxide fuel by Experimental Fast Reactor "JOYO". This examination was used that the mixed oxide fuel that contained Americium by 3% and 5%, and the mixed oxide fuel of Americium and Neptunium that contained 2% for each. The irradiation examination executed a short term irradiation (For ten minutes and 24 hours) by the high linear heat, and achieved maximum linear heat about 430 W/cm in "JOYO". After it had irradiated it, the post irradiation examination of the fuel pin was executed in the Fuels Monitoring facilities. On the results of X ray CT examination, the result that the density decrease is forecast to the vicinity of the center of the fuel was obtained for ten minutes in the irradiation. The formation of the central void was confirmed to the center of the fuel in 24 hour irradiation.
