Department of Experimental Physics of Complex Systems concentrates mainly on bio-medical applications and condensed
matter studies using nuclear methods; here the bulk part of results has been
obtained with home facilities.
An extensive work
has been performed in trace element analysis using beam techniques PIXE, PIGE,
RBS as well as synchrotron radiation by means of SRIXE, XANES, and EXAFS in application to
biology, ecology, medicine, agriculture and geology.
The structure of intermetallic compounds, alloys, minerals and metals have
been investigated using the PAC and Mössbauer Effect techniques.
scanning force microscopy techniques has
been applied to both biological and material science research. Department is
collaborating with several institutions such as:
Laboratori Nazionalli di Frascati, Italy,
NSLS at Brookhaven National Laboratory, USA,
HASYLAB, DESY Hamburg, Germany,
GSI Darmstadt, Germany,
SOLEIL Gif-sur-Yvette, France,
ANKA Karlsruhe, Germany,
PSI Villingen, Switzerland,
and Institute of Complex Matter Physics, EPFL Lausanne, Switzerland.
