The entire installation has been designed to allow optimal use of the tools according to metrological and/or research needs.

The ATRON installation includes an electron accelerator, a control station, a maintenance workshop and a measurement and analysis test laboratory. In addition, separate entrance halls for equipment and staff and visitors allow a smooth and optimized flow of materials and people.
Their access is restricted to authorized staff and the security of the installations is ensured by a remote monitoring system.
The structure of the building allows adaptability of locals to anticipate the evolving needs of research and development teams.


The installation is designed to ensure that people are not exposed to workstations and the periphery of the accelerator. Its surface makes it possible to meet the progress of the requirements for qualification of material.

The design of the building is such that it ensures a safe environment for the public, authorized visitors and all teams.
The dimensioning specially designed for a fluidity of the circulations of materials and technicians, also allows work spaces adapted to research and industrial applications.
Air treatment and renewal of the irradiation room guarantee a good control of the hygrometry and temperature, which contributes to ensuring the best conditions of reproducibility and repeatability of the qualifications.

Access control

All rules are implemented to prevent any intrusion into our facilities.

A name badge is given to visitors temporarily during the duration of their presence on the technological platform, from their arrival to the restitution at the end of the visit.
Access, operation and control of the installations comply with the most demanding safety rules.


A study of all risks has been filed at the Nuclear Safety Authorities.

ATRON, nuclear operator subject to the authorization of the NSA, has prepared a file demonstrating the safe operation of the installation. It includes:

  • the general operating rules,
  • the sizing of biological protections,
  • all the measures taken to mitigate the risks associated with all the activities of the installation,
  • the analysis of each identified workstation.
ATRON benefits from an authorization issued by ASN under number T500392 and registration under number T500360, which give rise to the regular verification of the correct application of the rules defined during the preparation of this file.
