prof. RNDr. Pavel Povinec, DrSc.:
From Geiger counters to single atom counting

Abstract:
Progress in radioanalytical science, mainly in radiometrics and mass spectrometry technologies for ultra-sensitive analyses of radionuclides and their applications in studies of rare nuclear processes is shortly reviewed. While in the radiometrics the greatest developments have been made in underground gamma-spectrometry with large-volume HPGe detectors, in the mass spectrometry sector the accelerator mass spectrometry had the dominant position reaching the status of single atom counting and compound specific analysis for some long-lived radionuclides.
