KJM 5911 is taught at the University of Oslo (UiO). Go here for more information.

List of Laboratory Exercises:

**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_{3}from an aquous solution. This sample is then used to investigate basic counting principles and counting statistics.**The**- A^{234}Th/^{234}Pa Radionuclide Generator^{234}Th/^{234}Pa radionuclide generator is prepared by extracting thorium on a DOWEX ion-exchanger collumn.^{234}Pa is milked from this collumn and the half life is determined.- Liquid Scintillation Counting - The basic principles behind LSC is taught by measuring different beta-emitting samples. Quench-correction curves is obtained manually and explained.
- Isotopic Exchange Reactions
- Neutron Activation Analysis -(NAA) and Gamma Spectroscopy
**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.**Szilard-Chalmers reaction****Working with large amounts of radioactivity**
