FOCUS AREA: detection of illegal/hazardous goods, cargo inspection
The project investigates a new all-in-one system for cargo inspection whose purpose is to become simultaneously a user-friendly, flexible, relocatable solution offering high-quality information for:
- fast high energy 3D X-rays tomography
- neutron interrogation/photofission
- narrow gamma ray beam based NRR (nuclear resonance fluorescence).
The main body of the research will be followed by lab validations and real-environment demonstrations.
- Development of a disruptive new type of radiation production technique: the laser plasma based source, capable of addressing cargo inspection challenges.
