3D Printed Mask and faceshield

The department has been able to 3D print N95 masks. This are hard and soft plastic shields in the shape of a mask with the ability to replace 3 filter materials to be able to meet the N95 mask specifications. 

The department currently has three 3D printers that are also used for other types of printing of proto-types and other application models.

IAEA Marie Sklodowska-Curie Fellowship Programme (MSCFP)

We are pleased to inform you about the IAEA Marie Sklodowska-Curie Fellowship Programme (MSCFP), which was launched in 2020 by the IAEA Director General in an effort to increase the number of women in the nuclear field, supporting an inclusive workforce of men and women who contribute to and drive global scientific and technological innovation.

PhD (Physics) scholarship for a female student

Raman spectroscopy is a technique involving using a laser light to excite a sample of interest and the inelastically scattered (Raman) light collected and analyzed. The spectrum of Raman scattered light provides details of the Raman active molecules present in the sample under study. Since each molecule has unique energy structure, Raman spectral profiles of molecules are also specific to each. The intensity of the Raman bands is also known to be related to the number of scattering molecules, hence concentration.
