In order to study materials at atomic level, advanced instruments and techniques are required. The JEEP II reactor at Kjeller produces neutrons that make it possible to “see” even the smallest and lightest of atoms, like hydrogen and carbon.
Right now, important steps are being made in the design and development of new, large-scale neutron detectors that will be part of the instrumentation in the world’s most powerful neutron source; the European Spallation Source (ESS) in Lund, Sweden.
30th November 2012 an intergovernmental agreement of cooperation between Norway and Ukraine was signed in Oslo. The agreement focuses in particular on the Chernobyl Nuclear Plant in Ukraine, and on the on-going work concerning nuclear safety and radiation protection in Ukraine.
Multiphase technology was elected by Aftenposten's specialist committee as the best Norwegian invention since 1980. The computer programme OLGA is the basis for multiphase technology and is developed at IFE.
IFE is one of six research partners in the new collaborative environment CPPF. The vision is to improve the lifetime and value contribution of petroleum facilities while assuring safety for people, environment and assets.
The Norwegian Minister of Trade and Industry, Trond Giske, opened IFE’s Innovation Day, March 22nd. About one hundred participants from private business, private equity companies, the research community and public administration took part in the event.
IFE is delivering a complete experimental system for the new research reactor, Jules Horowitz Reactor (JHR) currently under construction in Cadarache, France. This is the first complete system delivery performed by IFE’s sector for Nuclear Safety and Reliability (NUSP).
- We believe your research will pay huge benefits for the next generations of nuclear operators, and we'd like to encourage all of you to continue to pursue excellence in control room design, states the feedback from the American crew.
Close to 70 attendants from 12 countries took part in the NOMAGE4 seminar in Halden, from October 30 to November 1st. NOMAGE4 is a Nordic forum for material research related to the next generation, Gen IV, nuclear reactors, established in 2009.
