Laboratories & facilities

  1. The Cyclotron of the European Commission Joint Research Centre (model Scanditronix MC40) is a highly versatile accelerator with variable particle energy and the capability of accelerating protons and alpha particles (8 - 40MeV) as well as deuterons (4 - 20MeV) and helium-3 nuclei (13 - 53 MeV).


  2. The JRC has up-to-date equipped laboratories to investigate nanomaterials safety as well as the detection, identification and characterisation of nanomaterials in food and consumer products. Its work focuses on a science-based understanding of nanomaterial properties and effects.

    Major topics of research include:
