Non-Destructive Testing
The center develops and applies NDT methods for specific industrial needs using: X, g and neutron radiography, computerized tomography, micro-focus radiography and micro-tomography, ultrasonics etc. It specializes in design and construction of systems based on proprietary innovative radiation detectors and software. Of special interest are various systems for automatic detection and identification of contraband of explosives and drugs.

National Radiation Safety Center
A center of know-how in safety aspects of ionizing (x-ray, neutrons, alphas) and non-ionizing (UV, cellular phones and antennas, laser, microwave) radiation. Serves the public in areas of work with radioactive materials and sources, incident prevention and management, legal aspects, exposure inspection, radiation level measurements etc. The center operates sophisticated equipment, develops and applies innovative radiation measurement methods, actively participates in development and writing of specifications and regulations and serves the authorities in inspection of radiation levels at workplaces.

Israel Research Reactor 1 (IRR1)
Israeli Research Reactor 1 (IRR1), first inaugurated in 1960, was donated by the USA government in the framework of "Atoms for Peace" program of President Eisenhower, to foster the use of nuclear technologies for the advancement of Israeli economy. The 5 MW reactor is of the "light water open swimming pool" type. The main areas of application of IRR1 include research and training in nuclear engineering, neutron radiography and diffraction, activation analysis and changing colors of semi-precious and precious stones. IRR1 is safeguarded by the IAEA.

Space Environment
Simulating the space environment at low, medium or geostationary earth orbits; testing and monitoring the quality of materials and electronic components to be used in space environment; creating a data archive on materials and electronic components; basic research in related areas. Collaboration with the Israeli Space Agency in its joint international programs.

Medical Diagnostics Instrumentation
ElectroOptical Ultrasound is a new medical imaging method based on the combination of transmission of light and ultrasound, technique able to give functional images (e.g. organs’ oxygenation and to detect anomalies in tissue metabolism) on top of morphological images.
Innovative g-camera based on CZT solid state spectroscopic detectors with the head of just few kilograms may replace the bulky Anger cameras in nuclear medicine diagnostics.

Radiopharmaceutics
Manufacture and distribution of nuclear medicine products for diagnostics (imaging, cardiology) and therapy. The product line includes both radioactive isotopes and inert carriers for leading the isotopes to the desired organs.
The products are distributed in bulk form (for preparation in the nuclear medicine establishment) or as single units, for specific patients, calibrated for the time of treatment.

Soreq Applied Research Accelerator Facility (SARAF)
SARAF will be a multi-user and versatile facility, based on a high power proton/deuteron superconducting linear accelerator. The main goals of SARAF are to enlarge the experimental nuclear science infrastructure, promote neutron-based research in Israel, develop novel imaging and therapy methods and expand R&D and supply of radiopharmaceuticals.
