Lylia Hamidatou

Dr. Lylia Alghem Hamidatou has been the director of the Nuclear Techniques and Applications Division and a senior research scientist at the Nuclear Research Centre of Birine CRNB, Algerian Atomic Energy Atomic Commission COMENA, since 1997. In September 2017, she was elected as a new member of the k 0 -International Scientific Committee. She was granted “Habilitation” accreditation to direct research in April 2014. In 2010, she was awarded with a distinction for her doctoral degree in Nuclear Physics at the University of Ferhat Abbes of Sétif-Algeria. Her research interests include neutron activation analysis (NAA), development and application of several techniques such as k 0 -NAA and radiochemical NAA, and cyclic-delayed neutron counting. In 2008, she won the Young Scientist Award in recognition of her early career achievements in nuclear analytical chemistry by the International Committee on Nuclear Analytical Methods in the Life Sciences at NAMLS-9 in Lisbon, Portugal. She has published more than 45 articles in various international journals, books, and conference proceedings. Her research interests are focused on the development of the PGAA method at the Es-Salam research reactor, the study of several types of matrices using k 0 -NAA and relative methods (major and trace elements determination in Algerian Alzheimer’s, psoriatic, and breast cancer patients), toxic and essential elements in seeds and medicinal plants, and rare earth elements in geological samples (rocks, clays, marble, sediments, etc.). She has participated in many IAEA_RAF regional projects to assess the analytical performance of the Algerian Neutron Activation Analysis Laboratory at CRNB.

Latest work with IntechOpen by Lylia Hamidatou

This book highlights the advanced technologies and applications of neutron activation analysis (NAA). It discusses the latest developments influencing the performance and utility of different NAA techniques across wide areas of applications: nuclear technology, industry, medicine, clinical investigations, biology, geochemistry, soil contamination, waste management, diet, lifestyle and health, cosmology, archeology, forensic science, etc. The overall goal of the book is to promote innovation and development of NAA techniques, technologies, and nuclear culture by presenting high-quality chapters with numerous results at both national and international levels. The book will serve as a source for graduate and postgraduate students in nuclear sciences and applications and nuclear analytical techniques, experienced practitioners who want to implement or use other varieties of NAA, professional technicians and analysts, users of NAA, and other stakeholders who wish to better understand NAA techniques.
