The IEAP is a scientific-academic unit of the CTU oriented on the Physics of the Microworld and its applications.
The Institute was founded on
The institute's accounting system is administered separetly under No 35000.
From these programs are derieved a number of projects, both of fundamental and applied character. Activities and experiments are carried out at international research centers to which the Czech Republic is active member.
At the instrumental level, the activity of the Institute concentrates on development of detection and spectrometric systems and methods for new technologies and applications such as 2D and 3D high-resolution imaging at the micro and nano scale.
On the figure are shown examples of Imaging in Material and Life Sciences using Thermal Neutrons (top) and X-rays (bottom). Thanks to advanced radiation detectors such as the Pixel detector Medipix it is possible to observe and image small amounts and tiny structures (e.g., 3D micro-tomograph of Lemo connector) as well as soft tissue (e.g., fur of mouse) where sensitivity and contrast enhancement are achieved by the unique properties of the radiation imager (Medipix) in combination with advanced methods of image reconstruction and novel detection principles such as Phase-shift Imaging.
