MARC: Methods of Applied RadioChemistry

The main objective of this project is to familiarize students with basic radiochemical methods.

07/09/2015 to 11/09/2015
Expected Outcome: 

The student is able to perform basic operations with open sources of radionuclides:

  1. decontamination
  2. preparation of radioactive sources and radiochemicals
  3. determination of radiochemical yields
  4. radiochemical separations
  5. radioanalytical techniques

Students can imply basic rules of radiation safety when handling open radioactive sources. They can apply methods of radiation detection and determination of uncertainties to real-life situations of radiochemical procedures.

Intended Participants: 

Students at Master level

The activity is organised for students of all CHERNE partners

Thorough knowledge radiation detection and measurement. Basic knowledge of Chemistry. Basic knowledge of EXCEL.
Number of Participants: 
Max. 14
Time Schedule: 

Students should express their interest by the end of April 2014 and register not later than 31st May 2014.

Registered students will obtain a hand-outs of the intended experiments and some literature to prepare
