  • Number of hours

    • Lectures : 20.0
    • Tutorials : 4.0
    ECTS : 2.0

Goals

The aim of this set of lectures is to provide an insight of the interactions between charged particles (proton, alpha, electron) and matter, as well as the interaction between photons and neutrons with matter. A mathematical description of such interactions is provided and put in perspective with experimental's results. Examples of applications are also detailed.

This set of lectures constitutes a pre-requisite for the course "Nuclear Physics" which takes place in semester 4.
