Measurement technology is an integral part of all sciences. The MRU has enjoyed many metrological projects over a diverse range of disciplines, a number of which are illustrated here.
Ranging from the slowest temperature and humidity measurements through ultrasound, microwaves, THz and optical frequencies and even into X-Ray and Gamma radiation, the MRU has a vast catalog of experience.
The effects of nuclear radiation damage are well known. Less known is the fact that radiation breaks the molecular chains in teeth enamel (Hydroxylapatit) resulting in free radicals which can be detected using electron paramagnetic resonance. The target is a portable measurement system which can be placed in the mouth.
