Gamma radiolysis facility 

In the same building where the accelerator is enhoused there is a panorama type semi- industrial Co-60 gamma irradiation unit also available for research purposes. The activity of the source is 3.7*1015 Bq (100000 Ci). The dose rate of the irradiation can be varied by changing the distance between the sources and the sample to be irradiated. The highest dose rates are in the range of 10 - 20 kGy/hour. The dimensions of the samples are practically not limited: small samples and very large samples can be irradiated homogenously. The samples can be thermostated (heated or cooled), continuously bubbled by appropriate gases during the irradiation.
