NUC E 542 Source and Detector Technologies for Nuclear Security (3)
The primary goal of this course is to educate the student on the theory behind radiation detection systems, sensors, and source technologies used in nuclear security, treaty verification, and non-proliferation. It is expected that the student will develop a deep understanding of radiation detection instrumentation and measurement techniques with a specific focus on nuclear and radiological materials. The student should develop a working knowledge of instruments and sensors for nuclear security-related applications. This course is meant to provide the student a foundation of understanding into the radiation sources and radiation detection technologies used in nuclear security applications, treaty verification, and non-proliferation. By developing this understanding the student will able to understand the advantages and challenges of radiation source and detection technologies used in the field.
