Institute of Radiation Problems

General Information

The Institute of Radiation Problems (IRP) is formed in 2002 on the base of Radiation Research Sector of Azerbaijan National Academy of Sciences founded in 1969 in Baku in the former Soviet Union. It was directed by Associate Prof. M.M.Melikzadeh, Acad. R.H.Ismailov, prof. M.E.Baghirov, Prof. M.Y.Bekirov, Acad. M.K.Kerimov and Prof. A.A.Garibov. During the last five years the following achievements were obtained: use of nuclear energy in transformation processes and solution of ecological problems; the radiation-induced processes in solid matters; investigation of radioecological state in the territory of the Republic; study of influence mechanism of radiation factors on biological systems; development of scientific bases of protecting living organisms from irradiation effect and the problems concerning radiation safety; study of radioecological and physicochemical basement of the influence of energy-fuel complex on environment; obtaining and study of energy transformers on the base of polymer composites, nanocomposites and AIIIBVI compounds. Institute of Radiation Problems of Azerbaijan National Academy of Sciences has 15 laboratories, 3 scientific centers, 2 departments, 2 scientific-experimental complexes. It now employs 274 people, including 132 reseachers, 1 Corresponding Member ANAS, 14 Doctors of Science and 61 PhDs.
