More than 50 years of Czech activation analysis

29. 10. 2018

On the occasion of this year´s 50th anniversary of the magazine's first publication, editorial staff of the Journal of Radiodiagnostic and Nuclear Chemistry has asked selected contributors, including our staff member Jan Kučera, for a paper to the special issue. He wrote an article "Activation analysis in Czechoslovakia and the Czech Republic: more than 50 years of activities", which is already available online (see: ).

It is obvious that the staff of our institute and the former Institute of Nuclear Research of the Czechoslovak Academy od Sciences have contributed significantly to the methodological research and applications of this group of sensitive analytical methods (neutron activation analysis, photon activation analysis and prompt gamma activation analysis) on the territory of the former Czechoslovakia.
