IMR-Oarai is open to researchers all over the world for the collaborative studies using irradiated-materials and Actinoids materials, as the most leading center in the related research fi eld for more than 40 years since the foundation. Research subjects covered here include fundamental studies and R&D on fusion structural materials, high heat-fl ux materials, and a variety of functional materials, as well as engineeringoriented studies for the safety of light water reactors and basic researches supporting them. Materials studies utilizing radio-isotopes are also being conducted. In addition, actinide-based new material development and advanced nuclear fuel development are other important topics of research in this facility.
