Photonis Nuclear Instrumentation

Photonis Nuclear Instrumentation leads the market in development and manufacture of sensors for nuclear power plants, fuel reprocessing plants, waste storage monitoring and nuclear research instrumentation.

Photonis Nuclear Instrumentation has a unique detector technology compatible with different reactor types, high level of radiations, high temperatures, high external pressures and LOCA (Loss Of Coolant Accident) and post LOCA protections.

For 40 years, Photonis has been growing its knowledge and experience through its involvements with the French nuclear power plants and research programs.
For the last 10 years, the Photonis customer list has grown to include Sweden, Bulgaria, China, Czech Republic, Russia, Slovakia, Switzerland, Ukraine and the USA.

Today our dedicated R&D team can develop or adapt Nuclear Components to customer specific requirements. The Nuclear Instrumentation group is organized according to ISO9001, IAEA50-C-G / KTA1401 standard and RCCE – EDF rules.

Neutron Detectors

Neutron Detectors

As a neutron has no charge, a neutron detector incorporates a neutron-to-ionisation particle converter. The incident neutrons are captured by the converter material which then produces (detectable) ionising particles by means of a nuclear reaction.

Gamma Detectors

Gamma Detectors

In Gamma Detectors, the gamma radiations produce electrons by interacting with the cathode material and the filling gas.

Mineral Insulated Extensions

The extreme operating conditions in which Photonis neutron and gamma detectors are operating can lead organic insulated cables to deteriorate, requiring repair.
