Research & Development Division

Research & Development (R&D) Division's mission is to carry out innovative researches, scientific and technical investigations in frame of the decision and vision of the presidency of Turkish Atomic Energy Authority (TAEK) in order to achieve the development of the country in the nuclear energy field and related technology by following the mission and the vision of SANAEM. R&D  Division of SANAEM consists of 5 main divisions which are listed below in order to carry out nuclear and nuclear-related researches.

Radiation Detection Systems Unit

Radiation Sensation Systems Unit  designs, produces and develops several instruments that we need measurement and dedection of radiation. For this, the Unit have laboratories that can possible to research, development and assembly.

On the other hand, the research and development of radiation sensing devices with semiconductor based circuit components is among the activities of the Unit. Moreover, in this Unit, theoretical and experimental training is given to the students coming from various universities every year. So that, the Unit contribute to theoretical and experimental infrastructure for students in their undergraduate, Master and PhD.

General Information

Strategically the most important goal of TAEK is to enhance the use of products of nuclear technology by acquiring it for the utmost benefits of Turkey. One of the objectives of TAEK in reaching this goal is to establish the required nuclear technology infrastructure in Turkey in parallel with the national priorities.  

The accelerator technology is one of the significant generic technologies, which entered to the service of humankind in 20th century. Being a generic technology, accelerators have a leading role in various fields of science and technology. Today accelerators play a central role in scientific studies ranging from biology to health, from materials science to metallurgy, from fundamental particles to universe. In countries advanced in science and technology, there are about 15,000 accelerators with different technological specifications serving for different purposes.
