Csilla Szabo-Foster (Fed)


Csilla I. Szabo-Foster is a physicist in the Dosimetry group of the Radiation Physics Division at NIST. Csilla is dedicated to performing calibrations and research in the field of dosimetry and x-ray metrology. She is currently working on calibration of brachytherapy seeds and protections level beta radiation fields along with precision measurements of x-ray transition energies to validate and improve standard reference data.
