RADI 4040U – Material Analysis using Nuclear Techniques


This course concentrates on the application of radiation techniques to the analysis of materials, including the structure and composition of various objects. An important area of application is the detection of materials that represent a threat to security, safety, health and the environment. Topics studied include: principles, methodology; instrumentation and characteristics of nuclear analytical techniques; radiotracers; thermal and fast neutron activation techniques; prompt gamma radiation measurement techniques; measurement of gamma radiation from inelastic neutron collision; track-etch techniques; X-ray fluorescence techniques; radiometric analysis; activation analysis using neutrons, protons and photons; characterization of atmospheric particulates; measurement of heavy metal concentration in water and soil; cost-effectiveness of various on-destructive testing methods.
