A threat of nuclear terrorism is one of the concerns utilizing nuclear materials and radioactive materials. The establishment of effective measures to prevent and neutralize the threat is required.
In this course, the fundamentals of nuclear security, nuclear materials and radioactive materials, design of physical protection systems, its fundamental physics, international regulatory frameworks are covered.
Students gain the practical experiences by uranium enrichment verification experiment, numerical simulation of hydro-dynamics of structure material and nuclear material criticality at the university and by use of intrusion detection systems in the training field of Japan Atomic Energy Agency (JAEA).
