PGAA Experimental Station

The prompt-gamma activation analysis (PGAA) is a nuclear analytical technique for the non-destructive analysis of elemental compositions of samples. The PGAA facility at the Budapest Research Reactor is dedicated to the application of the neutron-capture spectroscopy for chemical analysis. More

NIPS Experimental station

Thanks to its flexible arrangement, the neutron induced prompt gamma-ray spectroscopy (NIPS) facility is used for a broad scope of nuclear spectroscopic measurements, including gamma-gamma coincidence experiments, the detection of prompt-gamma radiation from materials irradiated in the neutron beam, and off-line counting of decay radiation at close-in geometries. Very recently it is upgraded to do prompt-gamma activation imaging (PGAI) and neutron tomography (NT) measurements on archaeological objects, in the framework of the project ANCIENT CHARM. More

DÖME equipment

This low-level counting chamber is an adequate tool to measure the activity of the samples after the irradiation (off-line counting) and to study other kinds of samples with low activities. The background within the chamber is about 1.60 cps. The facility is a property of the Atomic Energy Research Institute (AEKI), but operated by the our Department. More

In-beam Mössbauer Experimental Station

The applicability of the Mössbauer technique can be greatly extended when the source is produced by in-situ irradiation of a target with a beam of guided neutrons. For this purpose, a new facility is being built in co-operation with the Department of Isotope Applications. More
