Applications of nuclear methods (APPLICATIONS)

Program coordinator:  doc. Ing. Tomáš Trojek, Ph.D.

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)
