AINSE Specialist Committees
AINSE specialist committees give a strong focus in the following disciplines by providing ongoing advice on research, evaluation of applications for AINSE awards, and review of progress reports.
Applications in this area would be expected to advance knowledge in any of the branches of archaeology or geosciences. Applications may be made for AMS studies, PIXE/PIGE or NAA characterisation of materials to support the aims of the project.
Applications in this area would be expected to support research into diagnostic and therapeutic nuclear medicine, radiobiology, experimental radiation oncology, and radiation effects on biological materials.
Applications in this area would be expected to be concerned with understand problems based in environmental science. This could include dating using 210Pb, and 14C, and the analysis of natural processes, and experiments on organic or inorganic materials, or the biota.
Applications in this area will involve the study of the structure of materials at an atomic or molecular level involving instruments including x-ray scattering and reflectometry, electron microscopy and NMR. Applications concerning the study of soft condensed matter e.g. proteins and membranes are considered by this committee, as are those concerning hard condensed matter e.g. magnetic materials. The study of the properties and composition of engineering and inorganic materials; surface modification, surface characterisation and surface properties; advanced materials processing; specialist techniques in materials characterisation; materials testing, bulk and local materials properties; and effects of radiation on materials.
This group is primarily interested in conducting research at the National Plasma Fusion Facility H-1NF at ANU and in promoting Australian involvement in ITER the newest and largest plasma fusion experiment.
