Hello from Czech Republic

Post by Milos » 28 Jul 2019, 20:25


My name is Milos. I am from Czech Republic, small country in middle of Europe, where I live in beautiful city Hradec Kralove (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ajd0RQJn6Ks).
Our city is well known as the calm place to live in our country and for its architecture and universities. Since childhood I have been interested in many natural sciences like astronomy, mineralogy and chemistry, so I decided to study chemistry at the University of Chemistry and Technology in Prague, where I became interested in every spectrometry you can imagine :-) (IR, Raman, circular dichroism, mass spectrometry ...). My current profession is focused on bioanalytical chemistry employing mass spectrometry and ultraperformance liquid chromatogrqaphy at the Department of Medical Biochemistry where I work as associate professor.

Story behind my interest in gamma spectrometry is quite long, but main reason for it was accident in nuclear power plant Fukushima. I wanted to have independent capability to measure low activities of radionuclides in our environment and in food. Those days, decent gamma spectrometry system was well outside of my budget. Because I have some knowledge in electrotechnics, I decided to build one by myself. My job at the university is quite time demanding, thus development of my gamma spectrometer took several years. But now, I have the system with 3" PMT and NaI(Tl) crystal, with which I am able to measure really tiny amounts of radioisotopes with ease. I hope, that some of my experiments, which I would like to present at this forum, will be intresting for other members as well.

Best Regards,
