The Reactor Institute Delft can perform various irradiations for you. The purpose might be to modify material properties, accelerate aging, induce radioactivity - or any other. Strict legislation is applied throughout when radioactivity is to be induced.

We can irradiate your material with neutrons, high-energy gamma-rays, i.e. photons from the reactor core itself, gamma-ray from an intense 60Co source, positrons from the POSH or from a 22Na source, and pulsed, accelerated electrons from the van der Graaff accelerator.


Instrumental Neutron Activation Analysis (INAA) is a chemical analysis technique that allows for multi-element concentration determinations through nuclear processes. The Laboratory for INAA is part of the Reactor Institute Delft and offers to perform such analyses for third parties. The laboratory has a non-accredited quality system in accordance with ISO-IEC 17025:2005.

For more information please go to INAA.

Radiation Detector Calibrations

A wide range of ionizing radiation detectors can be calibrated at the Reactor Institute Delft.
