About the department

At the Department of low and medium energy physics (F2) we are engaged with the research at the field of atomic and nuclear physics. We apply the acquired knowledge at various fields, including radiological monitoring of the environment, material research, fusion, biology, energy storage, medicine, pharmacology, environment and archaeometry. We execute the research at extensive set of own experimental instrumentation, consisting of ion accelerator and beamlines, dedicated detectors of ionizing radiation, experimental setups for atomic and nuclear physics, as well as calibrated radiation fields. In addition, researchers from the department are granted the access to large scientific installations worldwide, including accelerators, synchrotrons, free-electron lasers and fusion reactors. The Department runs Radiological mobile unit ELME, a specialized unit of Civil Protection.
