Description

From the investigation of ancient pyramid to the frontier’s surveillance, the muon flux is currently used for commercial and scientific purposes. In IFIN-HH Romania, the muon tomography represents a very important research area, several application being currently under investigation. The geological studies of old mining sites and the custom control are presently on preparation, using new muon detectors developed in IFIN-HH.
