Radiation Dosimetry, 7.5 credits

About the course

The course covers Fundamental dosimetric quantities and units. Radiation field parameters. Different types of radiation equilibrium and calculations of absorbed dose. Relation between dose in dosimeter and surrounding medium (cavity theories). The Fano theorem. Perturbation correction actors and interface problems. Experimental dosimetry. Absolute and relative measuring dosimeters. Calibration of ionization chambers. Neutron dosimetry. Micro dosimetry.

This knowledge is fundamental for all applications where ionizing radiation is used, The course is thus valuable for professional applications in both medicine and radiation protection
