Subject syllabus:

The course focuses on the theoretical and practical foundations of gamma spectrometry, its aim is to present the current state of the field and prepare for the self-design and implementation of gamma spectrometric measurements. It covers the following areas: Introduction to Nuclear Spectroscopy (even-even, odd, odd-odd nuclei). Identification of isotopes. Gamma radiation detectors (scintillation and semiconductor). Signal processing, calibration, resolution, random coincidence. Modeling of the detector response. Designing spectrometric setups. Measurement of low activity, detector shielding. Absolute and relative measurement, standards, applicable standards.
