China and France have carried out diversified and fruitful cooperation in the field of nuclear power since the two governments signed the agreement on peaceful uses of nuclear energy in 1983. The Institute of Nuclear and New Energy Technology (INET), Tsinghua University started the R&D on high-temperature gas-cooled reactor in 1970s. The 10 MW HTGR (HTR-10) was completed and went criticality for the first time in 2000. HTR-10 is the only operational reactor of its kind in the world with Gen. IV technology and independent intellectual property. Under the direction of China Atomic Energy Authority (CAEA) and CEA, Tsinghua University joined the Sino-French nuclear scientist exchange program in 2001. At the invitation of CEA, more than 10 Chinese researchers have been assigned to France to carry out cooperative researches. Over the past 5 years, their researches have involved graphite material, vessel and fuel cycle, etc. for high temperature reactor. The 10 articles collected in this book are the research reports jointly written by researchers from Tsinghua University and French side, which record in detail the researches carried out and progress made in the above mentioned fields. By reading this book, the scientific personnel in nuclear field will have a deeper understanding on high temperature reactor, and the engineering personnel in nuclear material research and nuclear equipment design can also make a reference.
