About Ionizing Radiation Research Group (IRRG)
Ionizing radiation is widely used in our daily life. From industry to health to daily consumer products, commonly used in   International use of radiation in industry, health and power production is increasing rapidly. Radiation sources are utilized daily in hospitals, factories, educational institutions and many other establishments such as food processing and preservation. Radiation in the form of x-rays, gamma-rays, ultra-violet and infra-red is utilized daily, in medical imaging, and radiotherapy, in material analysis, in communications, in quality control and in many other activities. Moreover, natural radioactivity (background) surrounds us and is an integral part of our environment. However, the application of radiation sources requires a lot of care and high level of awareness of their hazards as well as their potential. Therefore the purpose of this research group will be to research into the different fields of radiation physics and its applications.
 
The group will be comprised of a number of scientists from various disciplines with a common interest in radiation physics and its applications, concentrating mainly, on the use of radiation for analysis and the monitoring of radioactivity in the environment. Also of interest are the medical applications of radiation, especially in the areas of medical imaging and radiotherapy. Furthermore, one of the prime objectives of the group will be to educate the community at large on the hazards of radiation sources, and through its research, disseminate information pertaining to radiation protection and international standards to the relevant regional and national institutions and agencies.
