This course aims to study the various chemical analysis operations, which are required for the treatment of nuclear debris and nuclear liquid and solid waste matrix generated from the nuclear severe accidents. In particular, 3 types of experiments consisting of solvent extraction, refining and conversion, and decommissioning will be performed.
The goals are as follows.
1.You can obtain the scientific and technical insights for the chemical analysis of radioisotopes and nuclear fuel material.
2.You can understand the liquid and solid properties of radioisotopes and nuclear fuel material.
3.You can get the suitable knowledge for obtaining the license of Type-I radiation protection supervisor.
