Department of Dosimetry and Application of Ionizing Radiation
Synopsis:

The aim of the course is to acquaint students with applications of ionizing radiation detectors and also with the principles of detection and spectrometry of ionizing radiation. Ionizing radiation detectors in this course is considered as a device which produces an evaluable signal at the time of interaction (unlike dosimeters). The aim of the course is to understand to basic principles of detection and calibration of common instruments in the field of ionizing radiation measurement.
