|Objectives||To obtain an overview of the theoretical and experimental background, concerning the application of ionizing radiation and radionuclides in industry and medicine.
Depending on the mode of application, information is in most cases obtained through effects of radiation on matter. Detection and evaluation of radiation can give the desired information about these effects.
The state of applications will be described and implemented in the laboratory classes and experimental demonstrations.
