SFedU Keeps an Eye on Radiation


Physics Research Institute (SFedU) carries out a research in radiation ecology and radiation security of human and environment.

For over 16 years the head of the laboratory for radiation research together with coworkers, students and postgraduate students organizes expeditions to Rostov Atomic Power Station and the area to measure radiation background, take samples of soil and plants for further analysis in the laboratory.

The laboratory is equipped with up-to-date machinery for carrying out this kind of research.

Generally experts state that soil samples from the area of Rostov Power Station show permissible amount of radioactive elements that steadily decreases. Ecological security of the Rostov Region is guaranteed by the lucky choice of the place the station is located in.

Today we’ve been using animals, chemicals and technical devices for detecting drugs and explosive substances. All of them have their drawbacks: chemical compounds are not quick to prepare and results are hard to see quickly. Technical devices have low sensitivity and detect only a certain class of substances. As for animals so they are used in many countries and results very much depend on their mood and needs – says the laboratory consultant.

Rostov researchers are searching absolutely new solutions able to fight terrorism. Three groups of specialists are working in the project: physiologists train animals, engineers develop devices and mathematicians create algorithms to calculate results.

The project turned out to be attractive for Ministry of Healthcare and Ministry of Emergency Situations of the Russian Federation.
