Abstract: The results of nondestructive and destructive examination of the SUPERFACT 1 experiment carried out by both the ITU and the French CEA are reported. This experiment aimed to study the behaviour of fuels made up with Np or Am under irradiation in the Phenix French fast reactor (FR). Post test examinations, jointly performed by the CEA and ITU, allowed comparison of this behaviour with the standard oxide fuel reference. The experiment's main results are reviewed. then, a real interest in the FRs for a high rate of transmutation of actinides is examined, and also, some limitations are discussed.
