Activities

The Laboratory for Ionizing Radiation carries out the tasks related to the calibration of the devices for measuring radon concentration in the air. In addition, constant improvement and development of methods and procedures for the purposes of achieving quality calibrations are underway. The laboratory has the ability to accurately control and measure the concentration of radon in the radon chamber, which, in addition to calibrations, allows for a controlled exposure to radiation of other devices for the purpose of scientific projects and research.

The Laboratory for Ionizing Radiation participates in international and national interlaboratory comparisons, and is also in constant contact with national and foreign scientific communities.

National Measurement Standard

The national measurement standard of radon concentration in the air is a commercial device for the measurement of radon concentration in the air AlphaGuard DF2000, a modern device with a measuring range from 2 to 2000000 Bq /m3, with a 3% error and a very stable calibration factor. Measurements are performed in the radon chamber custom-designed for our laboratory. Controlled atmosphere is established in the chamber by measuring pressure, temperature and humidity in real time using a software developed for our laboratory. The required concentration is established using the calibrated radon sources of 20 kBq and 93 kBq.
