Dr Volodymyr MOSOROV

Dr Volodymyr Mosorov  has been a  permanent staff of  KIS  since Octobre 2000. He received his PhD in 1998  from the State University of Lviv, Ukraine. V.Mosorov was awarded the title of Doctor of Scence from AGH University of Science and Technology Krakow Poland in 2009 . His main interests are in materials science and in computer engineering.

His scientific activities In the frame of DENIDIA project:

During stay at the University of Bergen scientific activity was focused on such main directions:
Software packages for simulation of radioactive particle transport and modeling of radioactive gauges,
Develop an 85 channel gamma-ray tomograph model using the MCNP package (version 5) to increase an accuracy of cross-section imaging of the UiB 85 channel gamma ray tomograph.

Using the MCNP5 package dr W.Mosorow has developed a 85 channel gamma ray tomograph model. This model is transferred to the Department. It allows to design a dual modality tomograph consists of the real ECT tomograph and virtual gamma ray tomograph (model). This virtualreal tomograph will provide data concerning multi phases flow without expansive financial costs to buy a gamma ray tomograph.

His training at the Malaysian Atomic Agency, Malaysia, consisted of the following directions:

The research works were focused on the PGNAA, which is a non-destructive technique to identify elements and determine their concentration in a sample by using neutron flux. For many elements and applications, this technique offers more sensitivity, accuracy and reliability compared to other conventional methods. Furthermore, PGNAA requires no special preparations of samples.
It is for this reason that neutrons in conjunction with gamma-ray spectroscopy is being developed at the Malaysian Nuclear Agency for in-situ quantitative elemental analysis and finally for provenance study of the Terengganu’s inscribed stone. Due to high historical values, the stone is now gazetted as a world heritage by the UNESCO.

The software model of the PGNAA setupwas developed. The model allowed to design and optimise the laboratory and field experimental facilities and based on these results a portable system will be constructed.
The scientific data or technical evidence obtained from this project will be of great benefits not only to curators and archaeologists but also to scientists, historians and many others.

An original algorithm for the reconstruction of the trace position within the radioactive particle tracking based on the Monte Carlo N-Particle code version 5 was also developed.
Additionally, during training period the fellow meet with Dr. O. Hojiboev from the Institute of Earthquake Engineering and Seismology, Tajikistan. This meeting had allowed to start writing a new international project with working title “Investigation of negative influence of global warming on Tajik glaciers”.
