Our group member are fundumentally investigationg the effect of different alloying ellements on the corrosion of different alloys especially Fe-Ni-Cr alloys
Water Radiolysis Modeling
Development of a kinetic model for calculating concentration of water radiolysis products in different conditions
Gamma Radiation Assisted Nano Particle Formation
Nano particles from many metalic componenets, Fe, Cr, Co, Cu, was formed using gamma radiation and their kinetics of formation was investigated

Who we are and what we do:

We investigate the performance of materials under irradiation.
We are experts in radiation chemistry.
Our main objectives are to determine the distributions of radiolysis products in various media under a range of environmental conditions, to understand the influence of radiolysis products on the behaviour of materials (in particular the corrosion of metals), and to investigate applications of radiation chemistry in materials science (for example, nanoparticle formation).
