*'''Handling and Measuring Radioactive Material''' - 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 UO<sub>3</sub> from an aquous solution. This sample is then used to investigate basic counting principles and counting statistics.

*'''[[KJM5911 Lab Exercise 2 - Radionuclide Generators and Half Life|Lab Exercise 2 - Radionuclide Generators and Half Life]]'''. A <sup>234</sup>Th/<sup>234m</sup>Pa radionuclide generator is prepared by extracting thorium on a DOWEX ion-exchanger collumn. <sup>234m</sup>Pa is milked from this collumn and its half life is determined.  
*'''Liquid-Scintillation Counting (LSC)''' - The basic principles behind LSC&nbsp;is taught by measuring different beta-emitting samples. Quench-correction curves is obtained manually and explained.  
+
*'''[[KJM5911 Lab Exercise 3 - Gamma Spectroscopy|Lab Exercise 3 - Gamma Spectroscopy]]'''
*'''Isotope dilution analysis'''  
+
*[[KJM5911_Lab_Exercise_4_-_Szilard-Chalmers_Reaction and Liquid-Scintillation Counting|'''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&nbsp;is taught by measuring different beta-emitting samples. Quench-correction curves is obtained manually and explained.  
*'''Neutron activation analysis (NAA)'''
+
*[[KJM5911 Lab Exercise 5 - Cyclotron Produced Tracers and Liquid-Liquid Extraction|'''Lab Exercise 5 - Cylotron Produced Activiy and Liquid-Liquid Extraction''']]. Short-lived radiotracers produced&nbsp;with a <sup>4</sup>He-beam from a cyclotron will be used to to investigate liquid-liquid extraction (LLE) of Mo.&nbsp;
*'''Using tracers to investigate liquid-liquid extraction (LLE)''' - Distribution ratios and yield will be measured using radiotracers. The measurements will be done with HPGe gamma-detectors and calibrating and using this is an important part of the exercise.

*'''Lab Exercise 6 - B-lab work & PET'''  
*'''Szilard-Chalmers reaction'''  
+
*'''Lab Exercise 7 - Actinides & Separations'''
*'''Working with large amounts of radioactivity'''
