  3. The JRC's radionuclide metrology laboratories carry out research on measurements of neutron-induced reactions and cross-section standards, and absolute measurements of radiation.

  4. The JRC produces and characterises a variety of targets for high-precision measurements of neutron-reaction data at the GELINA and Van de Graaff accelerators.

  5. The JRC's Van de Graaff facility houses six experimental set-ups, and provides a stable neutron field for more than a week without interruption.
