Reactor Institute Delft

The RID in about a hundred words

The Reactor Institute Delft is the Dutch centre of expertise for scientific research and education in the fields of reactor physics, neutron radiation, positron emissions, radiation detection and radiochemistry. A large part of the research focuses on medical applications, such as the production of medical isotopes and the diagnosis and treatment of cancer. In addition, new materials are being developed for sustainable energy such as solar cells and batteries and work is being carried out to develop the nuclear reactors of the future. In addition, the RID is the designated Dutch training institute for personnel working with radiation.
