Development of accelerator based micro IBA techniques for the study of environmental samples and material characterisation
Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation
The Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation (ANSTO) is a research establishment of around 950 people located approximately 30 km south west of Sydney, Australia. ANSTO has several research institutes, including Bragg, Radiopharm, Materials and Environment. These institutes alone include about 300 research and technical support staff. ANSTO's major neutron facility is the Open Pool Australian Light Water Reactor (OPAL). It is a 20 MW pool reactor using low enriched uranium fuel, and cooled by water. It is a multipurpose facility for radioisotope production, irradiation services and neutron beam research.
