The course provides overview of possibilities of the applications of ionizing radiation namely in the field of characteriza-tion and diagnostic of materials for the sake of science and technology. Emphasis will be given to advanced methods of materials characterization which utilize atomic and nuclear physical processes. Several diagnostic methods based upon ionizing radiation will be introduced.
