According to the established agreement on the construction of the International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor (ITER) in France, many engineers of the participant countries of the ITER project have left for their new assignments to the Cadarache work site since the middle of 2006. This paper reports on an overseas life, which has been experienced by the author for the first time, over a long period of time from last November with a focus on personal experience and impressions. With an introduction of the work site of the CEA research center of Cadarache, the place of residence Aix-en-Provence and the region of Provence where they are situated, there are described the environments and troubles in daily life, a wall of foreign language, and the pleasures of weekends.
KEYWORDS：ITER, thermonuclear, cadarache, Provence, France

The amount of low level radioactive solid waste is expected to increase
because of dismantling of nuclear power plants and nuclear science research
facilities. But disposal area for radioactive waste is limited, therefore
it's important to reduce waste volume as low as possible.
KEYWORDS：low level radioactive solid waste, high-frequency induction melting system, nonconductive canister, AI-ring

The fast breeder reactor "MONJU" (hereafter "MONJU")
is equipped with the system called "MONJU Integrated Data Acquisition
System (MIDAS)" to effectively acquire, accumulate and analyze
relevant real-plant process data gathered from the system start-up test.
KEYWORDS：MIDAS, real-plant process date

Fuji Electric developed a 15kW synchronous motor with a fixed YBCO superconducting field winding. The motor was tested actually in the water with a propeller for underwater propulsion attached. This development of the superconducting motor that uses the YBCO superconducting tapes was the first prototype developed in Japan. The motor was capable to output the highest power in the world at the time. (The highest power motor had been a 5.6kW motor, which was made, by IGC Super Power, Inc. and Rockwell Automation, Inc. in U.S.A. in 2005.) This paper introduces an outline from basic design to completion of the motor including various verification tests and the performance test.
KEYWORDS：motor, superconductor, YBCO

This radiation monitoring system is designed to perform 24-hour monitoring
every day the radiation condition of working environments within such
facilities and the radioactive concentration of gases and liquids emitted
out of the facilities. It is a very important system.
KEYWORDS：radiation monitoring system, radiation detector units, computer control system, central processing system
