Department of Dosimetry and Application of Ionizing Radiation
Synopsis:

Goals:

To broaden the knowledge of students who has previously absolved lecture on Ionizing radiation detectors in magister curriculum (or similar lecture). More advanced, less common and more sophisticated detectors are included. The aim is to specifically to broaden the knowledge, not deepen, i.e. to introduce as many detector types as possible, not to precisely analyze function and construction of one (or few) parcticular detector type.

Synopsis:

Principles, constructiion, parameters and applications of position sensitive detectors, detectors for particle physics and other less common detectors. Special spectrometrical measurement.

Topics:

1) Gamma spectrometry applying coincidence measurement (anti-Compton, pair spectrometer, sum-coincidence)

2) Neutron spectrometry (plastic scintillators, other detectors based on elastic scattering, 3He proportional counters, TOF method, Bonner spectrometer, n-gamma pulse shape discrimination)

3) Alternatives to photomultipliers; photosensitive sensors for scintillators and Cherenkov detectors (HPMT, photodiodes, avalanche photodiodes, SiPM, GEM, microchannel plates, streak camera)

4) Position sensitive detectors (semiconductors, PMTs, gaseous detectors, fiber scintillators, TFT)

5) „Rare event“ detection: Neutrino detectors, Double beta decay detection, dark matter detection

6) Detectors used in contemporary particle physics experiments

7) Other detectors (TEPC, Self-powered detectors, DIS, fluorescent screens, hybrid detectors)

Requirements:

Knowledge equivalent to lecture Detectors of Ionizing Radiation obtained in magister curriculum (Departement of Dosimetry, FNSPE, CTU in Prague).
