Environmental Radioactivity Research Laboratory (GRAB)

This laboratory is located in the Department of Physics and specialises in different techniques using radioactive isotopes as tracers. Some of the applications are the application of Pb-210 technique as a sedimentation process and Ra isotopes and Rn in water as an hydrological and oceanographic processes. The dedicated facility include:

  • Alpha spectrometers
  • High resolution germanium gamma spectrometers
  • Microwave assisted digestion system
  • Millipore Elix and MilliQ type I water production system
  • Rad7 radon measuring systems
  • RaDeCC short-lived radium counting systems
  • Quantulus 1220 liquid scintillation counting system
  • Fume hoods
