Multipurpose Irradiation Centre as a Component in Centre of Nuclear Science and Technologies
November 11 - November 16
The Department of Experimental Physics of the Ural Federal University provides educational programs in the areas of nuclear instrumentation, civil radiation technology application, radiation safety technologies, biomedical engineering.
Educational and scientific projects based on modern accelerators of charge particles – proton cyclotron TR-24 (Canada) and linear electron accelerator (Russia).
We have experience in using radiation technologies for processing food materials and sterilizing medical devices. We know how to design and manufacture competently to use radiation-monitoring equipment. On the one hand, the department has experience in development and production of unique spectrometric equipment, mobile and stationary radiation monitoring systems. On the other hand, we do scientific and practical research on radiation safety, including the development of models of radiation exposure to humans, the calculation of radiation loads and radiation risks, the development of methods for measuring radon, thoron and their daughter products in air, soil and water, metrological verification of instruments for measurement radon content.
Since 2010, we have been implementing the University’s largest innovative projects to create a Center for the Sterilization of Medical Devices and the Cyclotron Center for Nuclear Medicine based on an updated accelerator park.
This course is focused on main application fields of electron beam based radiation processing facilities.
- To describe the potential of MIC as the component of CNST
- To review the international standards and methods regarding radiation technologies and its implementation
- To recognize and utilize various equipment and systems for dose control and measurements
- To operate electron beam facilities and schedule irradiation protocols
- Physical, Chemical and Biological Basics of Radiation Technologies;
- Multipurpose Irradiation Centre as the Component of CNST;
- IAEA Recommendation and National Standards for Food, Medical Materials and Polymers Irradiation;
