APPLICATIONS

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 (http://kdaiz.fjfi.cvut.cz/aktivity/publikace.html).

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)

news from the program

A member of the Scientific Council of the Centre of Advanced Applied Sciences (CAAS), Prof. Wolfgang Peter Schleich from the University of Ulm, Germany, was awarded an honorary doctorate (Dr. h. c.) of the Czech Technical University in Prague (CTU) at a ceremony of the Scientific Council on 5 October 2021 in Bethlehem Chapel. He was nominated by the Faculty of Nuclear and Physical Engineering of the CTU in Prague (FJFI) and awarded the doctorate was awarded by Prof. Igor Jex, Dean of FJFI and Director of CAAS. Together with Prof. Schleich, Prof. Stephen Mark Barnett also received his doctorate.
For his contribution to the development of mathematical methods used in quantum physics, Prof. Pavel Exner, Coordinator of the Theory Program at the Center for Advanced Applied Sciences (CAAS), has been elected and appointed as a Foreign Member of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine in July 2021. Prof. Pavel Exner, an internationally renowned […]
Prof. Igor Jex, Director of CAAS project and Dean of the Faculty of Nuclear and Physical Engineering of CTU in Prague (FJFI), has been elected a member of The Academy of Europe (Academia Europaea). The Academy brings together scientific leaders from various fields of science, humanities and literature. It was founded in 1988 with the […]
The interaction between things and artists has the power to enrich all involved. This is why the PARTPHYS (Particle Physics) research programme of the Centre for Advanced Applied Science (CAAS) project has created a sub-programme Language for Science-Art-Public Communication. The process of preparation of the artefact and other activities within the sub-programme Language for Science-Art-Public Communication is also summarised in an electronic publication, which can be downloaded (pdf in Czech, 13 MB).
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.
