FORSCHUNG RESEARCH

Fast neutron research:

In a cooperation with Los Alamos National Laboratory, going back to the year 1969, neutron and gamma ray data both for basic physics and applied purposes are being measured and evaluated. The data reduction and evaluation is done at the institute.

More recently, in a cooperation with the University of Cape Town neutron experiments for applied purposes are made at the National Accelerator Centre of South Africa in Faure.

 

 

Highlights of recent years:

  1. Investigation of the possibility in using nuclear techniques for the identification and possibly the detection of hidden explosives.
  2. Application of nuclear techniques in planetary research (Mars)
  3. Further development of a package of computer codes (DROSG-2000) for the calculation of kinematic properties and predictions of neutron yields of accelerator-based monoenergetic neutron sources as a calculational backbone for the application of fast neutrons in medicine, humanitarian applications and technology.
