The SICURA (SICUrezza Radiologica – RAdiation Safety) project, an innovative proposal drawn up by Catalina Curceanu and Roberto Bedogni, researchers at LNF, wins the Lazio Region call for Research Group Projects – Knowledge and Cooperation for a New Development Model.
SICURA will develop a portable probe for detecting and identifying gamma radiation and neutron sources. It is intended to operate in the field of security and public order controls. Due to its high interconnection capability, with the SICURA probe it will be possible to real-time monitor scenarios such as squares, schools, sport events, concerts and shopping centres.
Thanks to SICURA, nuclear physics technologies developed at LNF will contribute to the security of us all and of the environment.
