Radiation analytical methods (IRMA)
Program coordinator: prof. Ing. Ladislav Musílek, CSc.
This program integrates activities and builds upon the experience of four departments of CTU-FNSPE: dosimetry and the application of ionizing radiation, solid state engineering, physical electronics, nuclear reactors in the field of modern instrumental methods of investigation of material composition and structure. Among the unique instruments used by the team we can mention the nuclear reactor VR-1 operated by the FNSPE (http://reactorvr1.eu/index_e.php). The CTU also operates the Van der Graaf accelerator and numerous analytical methods, such as Mössbauer spectroscopy, PIXE and RBS analyses, X-ray fluorescence analysis, etc.
The work in the IRMA research program will be split into three domains (sub-programs):
A) Radiation detectors (Petr Průša)
B) Instrumental analytical methods (Ladislav Musílek)
C) Material analysis using radiation diffraction (Stanislav Vratislav)
