Basic science of radiation measurement, nuclear instrumentation, neutronics, radiation dosimetry. The lectures emphasize the principles of radiation detection. The weekly laboratory applies a variety of radiation detection systems to the practical measurements of interest for nuclear power, nuclear and non-nuclear science, and environmental applications. Students present goals and approaches of the experiments being performed.
This course is restricted to students enrolled in the Master of Engineering degree program who may not use more than two "200M-level" courses towards their degree. Students will receive no credit for Nuclear Engineering 211M after taking Nuclear Engineering 104.
