Radiation Detection & Instrumentation
As today’s world evolves and expands, research into Radiation Detection & Instrumentation (RDI) holds more relevance than ever. RDI findings can be applied across a wide range of industrial sectors that use radiation detection as a core technology – from medical imaging and security scanning, to the defence services and scientific research organisations, particularly those focusing on nuclear physics, high-energy physics and space science. As the nuclear power industry enters a new era, there’s renewed interest in detector technologies across the energy sector too.
For information on our Postgraduate Research programmes and SEPnet PhD Scholarships please see here.
As RDI research can offer insight into Particle Physics, Nuclear Physics & Astronomy, and Applied Radiation Physics, we collaborate with external associated nodes, as well as with SEPnet universities, regional industrial partners and other research institutions. Linking directly with the Science & Technology Facilities Council, we’re building a critical mass of Radiation Detector research that will support both regional activity and national science priorities. None of which would have been possible without the SEPnet collaboration.
Transforming insight into education
Our dedication and expertise within RDI has even led to the creation of a new joint Surrey-Sussex MSc in Radiation Detection & Instrumentation, being delivered as part of the SEPnet Graduate School. Find out more.
