IRMA

Radiation analytical methods

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)

news from the program

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.
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, […]
