Service

We have more than 25 years of experience in the field of development, production and application of nuclear measurement instruments, software and systems as well as in discussions with authorities and consultants. Especially in all kinds of nuclear spectrometry we benefit of a very rich pool of knowledge and experience.

Our portfolio in services refers to these topics

  • High resolution spectroscopy systems for alpha, beta, gamma and neutron spectrometry

  • Integral measurement systems for alpha, beta, gamma and neutron counting

  • Measurement systems for contamination or for free release of staff and material

  • Dose rate measurement and dosimetry

For National and international organizations and companies in

  • Industry- and nuclear technology

  • Dismantling, consulting, waste management

  • Environmental, health and food surveillance and laboratories

  • Civil defense, emergency response, border, safety, security and access control

  • Universities, research centers, nuclear medicine

Education and Training

Training on hard- and software of nuclear spectrometry both in application and theory Organization of training courses and workshops

  • Both convention hotels or at customer site

  • Dependant on number of participants and existing infra structure

 

Training courses on these subjects

  • Fundamentals of alpha, beta, gamma and neutron radiation

  • Detection of nuclear radiation (Interaction processes, suitable detectors, electronics and analysis software, measurement techniques, functional principles of measurement systems and their application)

  • Analysis of spectra (Software, peak search, peak analysis, analysis parameters, calibration, nuclide libraries, correction function and algorithms, limit of detection and identification (e.g. ISO11929)

  • Analysis software of well-known companies as Canberra, ITech, Ortec (operation, data analysis, options, comparison)

  • Current subjects and trends in nuclear spectrometry and integral measurement methods e.g. ISO11929 (Application and implementation, possible sources of errors, insitu measurements, Monte-Carlo methods in calibration of nuclear spectrometers, incorporation and contamination measurements)

  • Hardware (failure diagnosis, troubleshooting, functional tests)
