Nuclear Measures and Electronics Laboratory

The activitiy of Nuclear Measures is devoted to the study, the application and the development of methods and techniques for measuring radiation fields of different nature and properties. Research activities, funded mainly through national and international research projects, concern spectrometry, dosimetry and microdosimetry of complex fields of neutrons, photons and charged particles, together with the nuclear signals analysis and development of innovative detection systems for radiation protection and medical applications. The laboratory hosts an experimental facility for thermal and fast neutron irradiations of detectors and dosimeters. Moreover, it offers a service to external users for the characterization of radioactive samples of small (in-lab) or large (in-situ) dimensions.
The activity of Electronics is focused on the study, design, fabrication and characterisation of nuclear detection systems: radiation detectors, electronic circuits for signal readout and processing.The main applications concern the electronic instrumentation for the nuclear measurements:•    physics (nuclear physics, high energy physics, material science, dosimetry and microdosimetry)•    nuclear plants (fission, fusion, nuclear safeguards and radioprotection)•    medical applications (SPECT, PET and radiotherapy).Relationship with external Institutions:Universities of Milan, Padua, Trento, Perugia and Bari,National Institute of Nuclear Physics (INFN-LNL, INFN-LNS),National Research Centres (CNR-IFP-Milan, CNR-INO-Pisa)International Laboratories (CERN, JRC-Ispra, Brookhaven Nat. Lab. NY USA, Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organization ANSTO)
