ReNuAL

Nuclear Science and Instrumentation Laboratory (NSIL)

The NSIL is part of the Physical and Chemical Science Division and implements the nuclear science programme. It provides support to member states in the development a broad range of nuclear applications and effective use of related-instrumentation.

NSIL carries out Adaptive Research & Development (AR&D) in, for example, X-ray fluorescence spectrometry used for testing of materials in diverse fields such as bio-medicine, pharmaceuticals, agriculture, environment, and for the analysis of cultural heritage objects. The NSIL assists Member States by developing portable systems and analytical methodologies for in-situ materials testing and environmental assessments. Training is provided through national and regional technical cooperation projects and on-site at NSIL with the nuclear instrumentation.

The benefits of the ReNuAL project

The installation of an IBA and other modern nuclear analytical instrumentation will provide advanced, relevant practical training, overcoming restricted opportunities elsewhere in the world. The NSIL will be able to serve as a model facility and reference Quality Assurance / Quality Control laboratory for ion beam techniques worldwide. The basis for industrial development through nuclear technology in Member States will be increased. Across the NA programmes, this NSIL IBA project has the potential to further strengthen interactions and collaborations amongst all the IAEA Seibersdorf Laboratories. The IAEA inter-disciplinary nuclear technology applications will substantially benefit from the synergies generated by the versatility and capability offered by an Ion Beam Accelerator.
