Radiation Protection Measurements

Ionizing Radiation and Radioactivity

Low Level Radioactivity Measurements

Aerosol filter measurement; Development and noble gas measurement method (xenon and krypton isotopes)

Pushing the Limits of Measurability

Our experts are dedicated to research and development in radiation measurement techniques in the ultra low level range. We are able to measure activity quantities that are millions of times lower than the natural radiation found in humans, rocks or water.
 
These highly sensitive measurements enable us to monitor nuclear incidents on behalf of international organizations, but also to protect the Austrian population.

Safety Through Quality

Our activities in the CTBT measurement network range from control measurements of sensitive samples through quality control of radionuclide measurement stations to advancements in measurement techniques.
