Research

The group of Radiation biophysics is aimed at understanding the nature and extent of damage to DNA and DNA-protein complexes induced by ionizing radiation at the molecular and cellular level. The group also deals with theoretical modeling, which is the source of additional information.

The group of External exposure evaluates the exposure to cosmic radiation on the Earth, as well as in its close vicinity. The focus is also on microdosimetry and ionizing radiation energy transfer processes. During 2012 the group has made accesible the online database of measurements onboard arcrafts with Liulin detector, it is available here.

The group of Radioecology is aimed on studies of several anthropogenic influences utilizing analyses of radionuclides. Applying the 14C determination, the group studies the occurence of radionuclides in the surrounding of nuclear power plants, or fossil fuel combustion. Using the radiocarbon dating, the laboratory also participates in research of the past anthropogenic influences and climatic changes; the webside of the radiocarbon dating laboratory with international CRL code are available here
