RADAM: RAdiation Detection And Measurement

The mail objective of the project to familiarize students with basic methods and radiation measurements

09/04/2018 to 13/04/2018
Expected Outcome: 

The student is able to

  • Assess statistical uncertainties in counting experiments
  • Set – up experiments with different types of detectors (GM-tubes, Prop-counter, NaI, Si, HPGe, LSC, Doserate meters etc.)
  • Select the appropriate type of detection system for different kinds of radiation (X-ray, alpha, beta, gamma, and neutrons)
  • Respect the radiation protection rules in handling sealed radioactive sources. 

The student also gets to know some additional techniques like coincidences, neutron activitation, waste drum assay.
