learning outcomes
Students are able to explain the interaction of ionising radiation with substances, nuclear reactions. They can define units and units of measure in dosimetry. They can explain the differences between gas, scintillation and semiconductor based detectors. They understand the principles of film dosimetry and the integral dosimetric methods, absolute dosimetry and calorimeters. They can process and evaluate collected data. They can define the differences between inspections of operational steadiness and inspections of long-term stability.
