The JRC offers open access to four nuclear laboratories, which allow studies of neutron-induced reactions, irradiations in well-characterised neutron and gamma fields and accurate measurements of radioactivity for science and technology applications.
- A high-resolution neutron time-of-flight facility (GELINA, Geel)
- An Underground Laboratory for ultra-low level gamma-ray spectrometry (HADES, Geel)
- A tandem-accelerator-based fast-neutron source (MONNET, Geel)
- Radionuclide metrology laboratories (RADMET, Geel)
These EUFRAT laboratories offer unique measurement and training opportunities to both young and experienced nuclear scientists and engineers, as well as to SMEs. So far, more than 100 researchers from EU Member States have participated in experiments from the open access programme, 25% of which were young students.
Tandem accelerator based fast neutron source
The high intensity quasi mono-energetic neutron source at JRC-Geel is driven by a vertical 3.5 MV Tandem accelerator producing either continuous or...
The JRC Neutron Time-of-Flight Facility
The JRC's Neutron Time-of-Flight Facility (GELINA) is one of the best pulsed white spectrum neutron sources available in the world.
Underground laboratory for ultra-low level gamma-ray spectrometry
Laboratory for ultralow-level radioactivity measurements.
Radionuclide Metrology laboratories
A cluster of instruments for both radiological characterisation of materials and high accuracy radioactivity measurements.
