Nuclear Technology Laboratory
Objectives and targets
The scientific staff of the Nuclear Technology Laboratory implements a scientific activity on the subjects of environmental radioactivity (measurements-models), diagnostics of industrial systems, coproduction of heat and electricity, interaction of fast ions with matter.
The development of the Nuclear Technology Laboratory started at 1981 with main research interest on the subject of the diagnostics of Nuclear Reactors and environmental radioactivity. During the following years the Laboratory broadened its activities as can be seen at Current Activites. The Laboratory gradually obtained equipement with main finacial support from research contracts from the European Union and the General Secratariat of Reasearch and Technology of Greece.
The scientific staff of the Laboratory teaches the following courses at the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering.
Introduction to Nuclear Technology
Theory and Technology of Nuclear Reactors
Electrical Power Plants.
About 6 students per year are working on their final project at the Laboratory.
3. Research activities.
The laboratory posesses a complete set of instruments for the implementation of special measurements on radiation detection. Actually:
This equipment offers the ability for the qualitative and quantitative determination of radionuclides. (eg. Cs-137 from the Chernobyl accident) with laboratory as well as with in-situ measurements. The Laboratory is a member of the National network for measuring the environmental radioactivity and in this framework the environmental radioactivity is beng measured on a daily basis.
The Laboratory's staff worked during the last decade on the concequences of the Chernobyl accident on the agricultural production and natural ecosystems at Northern Greece, on industrial systems diagnostics, on heat and electricity coproduction, on fast ion interaction with matter. Almost the whole research work was or is carried out in the frame of the following externally financed projects.
From the research work in the period 1990-1999, more than 40 articles were published in international scientific journals and a lot of presentations at international conferences.
