Resident divisions

Several research and administration centers, Directorates, and JAEA library, etc. are acting on Nuclear Science Research Institute (NSRI). Some of those are establishing the self-homepage as follow.

Nuclear Safety Research Center

For providing the technical basis for a nuclear regulatory authority and facilitating nuclear safety research, Nuclear Safety Research Center (NSRC) performs : Studies that focus on important events related to continuous improvement of nuclear safety; Extensive research on nuclear safety, including probable future issues.

Advanced Science Research

In order to discover new principles and phenomena, the Advanced Science Research Center (ASRC) is conducting frontier research related to the atomic energy sciences. Furthermore, to create new materials and technologies, the ASRC has the ambition of becoming an international center of excellence (COE) for basic research in the advanced nuclear sciences.

Nuclear Science and Engineering Center

The Nuclear Science and Engineering Center (NSEC) conducts basic studies to develop scientific knowledge and technologies for innovative nuclear solutions. Our studies cover a broad range of basic nuclear science and engineering topics : nuclear data, reactor physics, thermal hydraulics, actinides science, radiochemistry, analytical chemistry, materials science, particle transport and shielding, and environment and health physics.

Materials Sciences Research

Materials Sciences Research Center (MSRC) is a research center for materials sciences within the Sector of Nuclear Science Research of Japan Atomic Energy Agency (JAEA).
MSRC mission is to promote materials science research for nuclear science and its applications, mainly by using neutron and synchrotron radiation.

Sector of Nuclear Science Research

The Sector of Nuclear Science Research have launched the following mission "Advancing the latest science and technology that supports the use of radiation and atomic energy, and continuing the fundamental support of atomic energy development."

Intellectual Resources Department (JAEA Library)

The Japan Atomic Energy Agency (JAEA) Library is one of the largest nuclear information centers in Japan. The JAEA Library maintains a circulating collection of books in physics, chemistry, computer science, and engineering. The JAEA Library supports scientific research and development activities.

Integrated Support Center for Nuclear Nonproliferation and Nuclear Security

ISCN will further contribute to nuclear nonproliferation and nuclear security both in domestic and international arenas through its activities such as human resource development assistance, R&D in safeguards, detection and nuclear forensics, policy research and analysis, and operation of CTBT international monitoring facilities.

Center for Computational Science & e-Systems

The Center for Computational Science & e-Systems (CCSE) was established as one of the Project Promotion Sectors of Japan Atomic Energy Agency (JAEA).

Nuclear Human Resource Development Center

The Nuclear Human Resource Development Center (NHRDC) began training activities in 1958 for the training of researchers and engineers regarding nuclear power, which have become important activities of JAEA. NHRDC has since played an important role as a nuclear power engineer training organization in Japan. Recently, NHRDC widely expanded its training and personnel development activities such as running international training courses intended for Asian nations in the vicinity of Japan, training of engineers on nuclear power, and lectures on nuclear power for the general public.

Japan Proton Accelerator Research Complex

J-PARC (Japan Proton Accelerator Research Complex) consists of a series of world-class proton accelerators and experimental facilities that utilize high-intensity proton beams. Open to users from around the globe, J-PARC is a multipurpose and multidisciplinary facility that is unique in the variety of secondary-particle beams produced and used in cutting-edge research across a wide range of scientific fields. Neutron, pion, kaon, and neutrino beams are all produced at J-PARC via collisions between proton beams and target materials (spallation reactions). These beams find use in fundamental nuclear and particle physics, materials and life science, and nuclear technology applications.

Collaborative Laboratories for Advanced Decommissioning Science

As the international research and development base, the "International Collaborative Research Building" that is the core of the Collaborative Laboratories for Advanced Decommissioning Science (CLADS) was constructed near the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station (1F), Tokyo Electric Power Company Holdings. Inc. In the building, the network is being formed where researchers in domestic and oversea universities, research organizations and industries can interact.
