"It is more difficult to break down a prejudice than an atom." Albert Einstein

The splitting of an atom causes atomic nuclei into decayinto a lower and more stable energy state. This decay results in a spontaneous emission of particles, or radiation. The influences of civilisation or the handling of natural and artificially produced radioactive substances in research, industry and medicine can result in additional radiation exposure to the public. Radiation protection means limiting exposure to the absolutely unavoidable level. That's where our core competence lies.
