Description

P.P. Povinec1, I. Světlík2, J. John3, M. Ješkovský1, M. Němec3, J. Kučera2 1 Faculty of Mathematics, Physics and Informatics, Comenius University, Bratislava, Slovakia 2 Institute of Nuclear Physics, Czech Academy of Sciences, Řež near Prague, Czech Republic 3 Faculty of Nuclear and Physical Engineering, Czech Technical University, Prague, Czech Republic A joint research programme has been established to study anthropogenic radionuclides in the environment using Accelerator Mass Spectrometry (AMS), namely 14C variations in the atmosphere and biosphere, and content of plutonium isotopes in the atmosphere and hydrosphere. Specifically, observations of 14C variations in the atmosphere and biosphere around the Czech and Slovak nuclear power plants wil be presented and discussed in detail. Ion Beam Analysis (IBA) techniques have ben applied for radiation damage studies of construction materials of nuclear reactors, and of electronics components working in high radiation fields, e.g. at nuclear reactors and in space instruments. ___________________________ *) Dedicated to the memory of Prof. Petr Beneš
