Analysis of the IAEA reports about the Iranian nuclear program
Iran is running a nuclear program where many aspects are not perfectly consistent to the asserted civil use. It has developed and installed a large infrastructure e.g. centrifuge production and large scale uranium enrichment (to 20% U-235), the small Teheran Research Reactor and is constructing a large heavy water research reactor. Furthermore it operates the Russian build nuclear Power Plant in Buschehr. All these activities are not per se non-peaceful. But for instance the amount of uranium enrichment seems to be above the demand of Iran and building a natural uranium fueled, heavy water moderated reactor would give Iran an excellent opportunity to produce weapon-grade plutonium. In addition Iran has not proven very cooperative with the IAEA in the past. A wealth of information about this issue is found in the IAEA reports of the Director General. All but the most recent of these reports have be derestricted and released to the general public. This talk gives an analysis the IAEA reports on Iran and summarizes the situation of the Iranian nuclear program.
