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 UO3 from an aquous solution. This sample is then used to investigate basic counting principles and counting statistics.
  • The 234Th/234Pa Radionuclide Generator - A 234Th/234Pa radionuclide generator is prepared by extracting thorium on a DOWEX ion-exchanger collumn. 234Pa is milked from this collumn and the half life is determined.
  • Gamma spectroscopy
  • Liquid-Scintillation Counting (LSC) - The basic principles behind LSC is taught by measuring different beta-emitting samples. Quench-correction curves is obtained manually and explained.
  • Isotope dilution analysis
  • Neutron activation analysis (NAA)
  • 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
