Welcome to the Institute for Radioecology and Radiation Protection (IRS)
Welcome to the web sites of IRS. We work on detection and speciation of radionuclides in the environment, dose assessment due to anthropogenic and natural radioactivity, topics in the framework of nuclear waste disposal, radiation protection issues and conduct training courses on radiation protection (knowledge on radiation protection according to the German radiation protection ordinance, StrSchV). We are glad to help you with any question regarding radioactivity and radiation protection.
The IRS is part of the faculty of mathematics and physics of the Leibniz Universität Hannover. Our team members are from physics, chemistry, geology, soil science, biology, mathematics and sociology.
