The LIBPhys-UNL is one of the three groups of the new research unit LIBPhys (Laboratory for Instrumentation, Biomedical Engineering and Radiation Physics) created in January of 2015. Relying on the complementary know-how to strength and to perform more efficiently the future R&D activities, the main motivation for this merging is the optimization of the human and material resources, deepening the already existing synergies.


The R&D activities of LIBPhys are developed in the areas of atomic, molecular, nuclear physics and electronic & industrial automation instrumentation with applications to analytical methods, radiation detection, and biomedical engineering. To efficiently coordinate the scientific research interests of this new unit, four thematic strands (TS) of research have been identified, compromising researchers from the three research groups: Fundamental Parameters and Metrology; Cryogenic, Electronics and Radiation Detection Instrumentation; Analytical Techniques Development and Application; Biomedical Engineering.
