The laboratory was established in 1983 at the Institute of Nuclear Energy of the Academy of Sciences of the BSSR. It was the basis for the creation of a department for the use of radiation in the national economy of the Republic in 1988.
Since 1992, it has been operating as part of the Institute of Radiation Physico-Chemical Problems, allocated from the Institute of Nuclear Energy of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus, as part of the Academic Scientific and Technical Complex (ANTK-Sosny) of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus.
In 1993, a radiation technological complex was created in the laboratory on the basis of the UELV-10-10 multipurpose linear electron accelerator, a flow-through experimental laboratory unit PELU.
Since 2002, the electron beam technology laboratory has been operating as part of the Joint Institute for Energy and Nuclear Research – Pines of the NAS of Belarus, formed by the merger of 3 institutes at the Sosny industrial site.
In 2004, the laboratory of radiation chemistry was joined to the laboratory of electron beam technologies, the laboratory was called – radiation-chemical processes.
The main directions of scientific research
Physics of the interaction of radiation with matter:
- fundamental and applied research related to the physics of the interaction of radiation with matter, the chemistry of organic and inorganic compounds, radiation modification of high molecular weight compounds.
- development and implementation of modern radiation-chemical technologies using powerful radiation sources: (sterilization and radiation treatment of products for various purposes on a semi-industrial scale, including raw materials for the manufacture of medicines, disposable and reusable medical devices; radiation modification of polymeric materials and products from them , products of microelectronics and electronic equipment, etc);
- modernization and operation of high-power electronic physical radiation facilities, mainly electron accelerators;
- development and implementation of instruments, tools and methods for monitoring and automation of radiation-technological processes, technological dosimetry;
- conducting exploratory research in promising areas in the above areas.
