About the course
Which detectors are more appropriate for the measurement of different types of ionising radiation and how do they work? How are measurement results analysed and interpreted? These and other questions are discussed in the course, giving an insight into the methods used to measure ionising radiation.
Apart from the basics, the course will discuss applications from industry, medicine and research, for example, measurement of natural and artificial sources of radiation, dosimetry and radiation protection, spectroscopic measurements as well as imaging techniques. The course is suitable for participants from industry and public authorities.
Outline for distance course: Communication between teachers and students is done using the learning management system and e-meeting tools. A computer with a stable internet connection and webcam is required. It will be possible to attend physically on campus for some parts of the course, for students who wishes to do so.
