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 UO_{3}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^{234}Th/^{234m}Pa radionuclide generator is prepared by extracting thorium on a DOWEX ion-exchanger collumn.^{234m}Pa is milked from this collumn and its half life is determined.**Lab Exercise 3 - Gamma Spectroscopy****Lab Exercise 4 - Cylotron Produced Activiy and Liquid-Liquid Extraction.**'**Short-lived radiotracers produced at with a cyclotron alpha-beam will be used to to investigate liquid-liquid extraction (LLE) of Mo.****Lab Exercise 5 - 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
- 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**
