Abstract: By using an electron accelerator with 18 MeV electron beam energy and gamma rays available in Akdeniz University Nuclear Sciences Application and Research Center, we have contributed to many nuclear physics research fields in Turkey such as agriculture and foodstuffs, engineering sciences, health and medicine as well as research and development studies. In this talk, I will present our recent results on (γ,n) and (γ,p) photo-nuclear reactions and photo-fission of heavy nuclei such as Thorium, Uranium and Americium. It should be noted that these results were performed for the first time in Turkey by our scientist, machinery and equipment as well as locally prepared targets at Akdeniz University.
