Welcome to HUREL:

We are a research group in the Department of Nuclear Engineering at Hanyang University in Seoul, Korea. Our group is interested in developing innovative technologies in radiation engineering and medical physics. For example, we are now developing a new type of Compton imaging system that can provide fast high-resolution 3D images. We are also developing a measurement system that can measure the proton beam range in the patient very accurately, which is critically important not only for the effectiveness of treatment, but also for the safety of the patient. Finally, we are developing mesh-based computational human phantoms for medical and radiation protection applications. We understand that realizing these technologies is very challenging, requiring a significant amount of time and efforts, but once these technologies are successfully developed, the impact is tremendous. To remain competitive with other research groups in this field, we are doing our best in learning and developing the three core technologies in our group, that is, Monte Carlo radiation transport simulation, precision radiation measurement and imaging, and computational phantom technologies.

Once again, welcome! You are welcome to learn about our research activities and get to know the people working in our group.
