Environmental radioactivity studies in Kabul and northern Afghanistan
From earlier surveys conducted by soviet researchers, the Kabul area was identified as a region of high natural radioactivity. In addition, depleted uranium ammunition was used by the Soviet armed
MEASUREMENTS IN AFGHANISTAN USING AN ACTIVE RADON EXPOSURE METER AND ASSESSMENT OF RELATED ANNUAL EFFECTIVE DOSE
TLDR
A number of simple recommendations has been proposed for the possible reduction of effective annual dose caused by radon in the measurement locations based on the local conditions.
Activity concentration and annual effective dose estimation of 210Pb, 40K and 137Cs in soils of southern Algeria
Sixteen soil samples with depth ranging from 0 to 2 cm were collected from the Sahara region near the locations where in the early 1960s France conducted a series of aboveground and underground
Recent upgrade of the PITZ facility
The Photo Injector Test facility at DESY, Zeuthen site (PITZ), is dedicated to develop and optimize high brightness electron sources for short wavelength FreeElectron Lasers (FELs) like FLASH and the
Assessment of radiation protection and awareness level among radiation workers and members of the public in Afghanistan - A pilot study.
TLDR
Recommendations to the authorities for raising the knowledge of the radiation workers and general public awareness through launching regular radiation safety and protection training, TV spots and other means of mass media are concluded.
Current status of radioactive waste management in Afghanistan
This study reviews the status of the radioactive material produced in Afghanistan. It also evaluates the legal framework and technical capabilities of Afghanistan in managing their radioactive
On the occurrence and origin of anthropogenic radionuclides found in a fragment of the Chelyabinsk (LL5) meteorite
A piece of the 2013 Chelyabinsk meteorite was investigated for its content of anthropogenic radionuclides. In addition to traces of cesium‐137 that had been previously reported for this particular
Construction and test of a new CBM-TRD prototype in Frankfurt
A new TRD prototype based on a thin Multi Wire Proportional Chamber (MWPC) without a drift region and with carbon frame was designed at the Institute for Nuclear Physics in Frankfurt (IKF) and tested
CONDITIONING OF A NEW GUN AT PITZ EQUIPPED WITH AN UPGRADED RF MEASUREMENT SYSTEM
A new photocathode electron gun is about to be characterized at PITZ. It is an L-band normal conducting 1.6 copper cell cavity with improved cooling system. It has the same design as the previously
