PHYS-452 / 3 crédits

Enseignant: Lamirand Vincent Pierre

Langue: Anglais


Summary

The course presents the detection of ionizing radiation in the keV and MeV energy ranges. Physical processes of radiation/matter interaction are introduced. All steps of detection are covered, as well as detectors, instrumentations and measurements methods commonly used in the nuclear field.

Content

Keywords

radiation detection; radiation-matter interaction; ionizing radiation; detector; signal processing; nuclear instrumentation; measurement methods

Learning Outcomes

By the end of the course, the student must be able to:

  • Explain interaction processes of ionising radiation and matter
  • Describe the production of a detection signal and its processing
  • Explain the operation of all types of commonly used detectors
  • Assess / Evaluate the detection system and method required for a specific measurement

Transversal skills
