Goals

The labworks in nuclear instrumentation represent an introduction to the practice of basic to advanced nuclear detection techniques used both in the electronuclear and the subatomic fields. The students work in a team of two during 8 hours sessions. Six topics are addressed: alpha/beta/gamma spectroscopies, slowing-down and detection of neutrons, gamma-gamma coincidences, ionisation chamber.
