COURSE GOALS: To provide the students with a thorough look at the phenomenon of radioactivity and methods of protection. The course deals with practical application of radioactive isotopes and their quantitative analysis. The students will be given to read latest scientific literature in the field of radiochemistry.
LEARNING OUTCOMES SPECIFIC FOR THE COURSE:
The student should be able to understand phenomenon of radioactivity, radiation-chemical processes and biological effects of radiation.
Fundamental concepts of the phenomenon of radioactivity. Interaction of radiation and matter. Sources of nuclear radiation, detection and measurement of ionising radiation. Application of radioactive isotopes in analytical chemistry. Activation methods, nuclear microanalysis, isotope dilution methods, radioimmunology, radioisotope mass spectrometry, automatic radiochemical separation, liquid scintillation methods in environmental analysis. Preparation techniques of samples for analysis. Statistical considerations in radioactivity measurements. Radiation-chemical processes and biological effects of radiation. Radiation protection in practice.
* The course content to be supplemented with new scientific achievements in the field.
REQUIREMENTS FOR STUDENTS:
The student is expected to take an active part in lectures, to complete all exercises and to prepare a paper on a given topic.
GRADING AND ASSESSING THE WORK OF STUDENTS:
