Enhancement of irradiation capability of the experimental fast reactor Joyo

Maeda, Shigetaka   ; Sekine, Takashi ; Aoyama, Takafumi ; Suzuki, Soju

The experimental fast reactor Joyo is the first sodium-cooled fast reactor in Japan. One of the primary missions of it is to perform irradiation tests of fuel and structural materials to support the development of fast reactors. The MK-III high performance core upgrade to enhance the irradiation testing capabilities was completed in 2003. In order to expand Joyo's capabilities for innovative irradiation testing applications, neutron spectrum tailoring, lower irradiation temperature, sample movable devices and fast neutron beam holes are being considered. By this program, the latent core performance is sufficiently drawn. It accurately responds to existing irradiation needs and aims at further various irradiations.
