Applications of nuclear methods

The Application group will further develop research in medical physics, monitoring of environment and application of nuclear methods in studies of cultural heritage. The team’s scientific activities follow the research performed in a six-year project Applications of Radionuclides and Ionizing Radiation. The proposed study into significant objects in Czech cultural heritage is connected with two projects of the Ministry of Culture of the Czech Republic. The scientific topics in Medical physics are complementary to the international OPPERA project CAThyMARA (Adult Thyroid Monitoring After Reactor Accident). The group will also continue to apply methods from the fields of physics and nuclear science in a wider context valuable to society. Applications of techniques derived from nuclear physics are currently studied at FNSPE (

The Applied Research group will be divided into the following areas (sub-programs):

A) Medical physics (Tomáš Vrba)
B) Environment and monitoring (Lenka Thinová)
C) Cultural heritage (Tomáš Čechák)



doc. Ing. Tomáš Trojek, Ph.D.

news from the program

To demonstrate the so-called quantum supremacy of a quantum computer based on photons, Chinese scientists used a solution to a computational problem formulated at the Faculty of Nuclear Sciences and Physical Engineering of the Czech Technical University in Prague (FNSPE). Specifically, the Gaussian Boson Sampling protocol, developed by Craig Hamilton and Igor Jex of the FNSPE and their partners, the group of Christine Silberhorn of the University of Paderborn (FRG). The research team of the Chinese University of Science and Technology published a report on the results on December 3, 2020 in the journal Science.
The largest ICHEP2020 particle physics conference, which took place between July 28 and 6 August 2020, attracted over 3,000 particle physicists. Originally, the organizers expected that about a thousand of them would arrive in Prague, but due to the pandemic, the plans had to change and the conference moved to the online environment. In total, […]
