NUC-4130 Radiation Interactions

Radiation Interactions is an advanced undergraduate course that builds on fundamental concepts in radiation physics. It is a study of the interaction of charged particles with matter. The course serves two purposes. First, it reviews the physics of the atom, radioactive decay, and the interaction of radiation with matter. Second, it describes the methods of radiation detection and radiation dosimetry and shielding.

Advisory: It is advisable to have knowledge in a course equivalent to NUC-4120: Radiation Biophysics with a grade of C or better to succeed in this course. Students are responsible for ensuring they have the required knowledge. It is strongly recommended that you do not take any of the Nuclear Engineering Technology and Radiation Protection area of study courses unless your math skills, up to and including derivatives and integrals, are current. Students are responsible for making sure that they have the necessary knowledge.
