Fundamental Parameters And Metrology
In a world were global challenges like the energy shortage, environmental protection, and economical problems in less developed areas must be addressed, there is a need for new solutions based on sound scientific foundations.
Pushing the limits of technology requires a critical assessment and evaluation of available data related to the interactions of radiation with matter that is called “fundamental parameters”.
The lack of recent reliable values with low associated uncertainties has been pointed out by the scientific community as well as by industry and metrological laboratories. The research team has addressed this issue considering radiation from the visible and ultra-violet (VUV) to the X-rays and gamma-rays regimes.
