Synopsis:

In this practical exercises, the students will familiarize themselves with the principles of experimental radiation chemistry and photochemistry and obtain knowledge in the practical applications of radiation and photochemical methods for characterization of irradiation sources (chemical dosimetry for determination of dose rate in ionizing radiation sources, chemical actinometry for evaluation of photon flow in non-ionizing radiation sources), syntheses of various inorganic materials (metals, simple oxides, indirect synthesis of multicomponent oxides) and other applications of photochemical reactions.

Requirements:

1.Basic course of nuclear chemistry.

2.Basic course of ionising radiation detection.

3.Fundamentals of radiation chemistry

Syllabus of lectures:
Syllabus of tutorials:

1.Fricke and Fricke-Hart dosimeter.
