In present day scenario keeping environment safe is a challenge. Energy requirements by modern world necessitates use of processes using fossil fuel as well as nuclear power plants that need safety measures for eliminating danger to personnel working in plants and the neighbouring environment. The talk discusses important sensors that are used in ensuring health safety by nuclear industry. Nuclear sensing techniques are emerging for dangerous material detection too.

Material development needs very high magnification viewing by using electron matter interaction. Several techniques that are used in high end sensing are dealt with in the talk.

Nuclear industry uses special equipment including various types of tele-operated agents, optical gadgets and support systems for safe working. The talk discusses some of these techniques for difficult applications. ‘Sensor fusion’ is an important aspect in surveillance applications for health safety implementations , these too will be discussed in adequate details.
