KJM 5911 Laboratory Exercises List
KJM 5911 is taught at the University of Oslo (UiO). Go here for more information.
List of Laboratory Exercises:
- Lab Exercise 1: Basic lab-training, making a uranium source and GM-counting. This is a introduction on how to work in a rad. lab. The student will lern basic radiation protection principles and do some basic work with natural uranium, e.g. prepare a counting sample by filtering UO3 from an aquous solution. This sample is then used to investigate basic counting principles and counting statistics.
- Lab Exercise 2 - Radionuclide Generators and Half Life. A 234Th/234mPa radionuclide generator is prepared by extracting thorium on a DOWEX ion-exchanger collumn. 234mPa is milked from this collumn and its half life is determined.
- Lab Exercise 3 - Gamma Spectroscopy
- Lab Exercise 4 - Szilard-Chalmers Reaction and Liquid-Scintillation Counting. Production of carrier-free radioactivity by exploiting the reactivity of free radicals created due to recoiling nuclei. The basic principles behind LSC is taught by measuring different beta-emitting samples. Quench-correction curves is obtained manually and explained.
- Lab Exercise 5 - Cylotron Produced Activiy and Liquid-Liquid Extraction. Short-lived radiotracers produced with a 4He-beam from a cyclotron will be used to to investigate liquid-liquid extraction (LLE) of Mo.
- Lab Exercise 6 - B-lab work & PET
- Lab Exercise 7 - Actinides & Separations
