Our Nuclear Instrumentation team designs and manufactures Neutron and Gamma Detectors for extreme environments.
Photonis is a leader in the design and manufacturing of reliable detectors dedicated to the Safety of the Nuclear Core.
Photonis detectors are present on all the French Nuclear Power Plants as well as customized Research Reactors. We have unique detector technologies compatible with different reactor types and environments such as high level of radiation, high temperature, high external pressure and LOCA (Loss Of Coolant Accident) and post LOCA protection.
Assure your safety
As a 1E, Safety critical, component supplier, Photonis defines your safety as its overriding priority.
The Nuclear Instrumentation staff answers to a Quality Management program that uses both training and independent inspections.
This QM program guarantees that you always get safety class components for your systems.
The Nuclear Instrumentation team is organized according to ISO9001.
Product and supporting documentation are delivered according to your nuclear manufacturing standards such as IAEA50-C-G / KTA1401, RCCE (EDF rules), ASME, HAF604.

Photonis and future Generations
Photonis detector solutions are also present in safety-critical systems on many research reactors in France and Worldwide. Thanks to this strong link with research (CEA) and extensive operational experience on Generation II reactors, Photonis has developed instrumentation that fits for the challenges of Generation III (EPR) and IV (Astrid, HTR) reactors.
