RADIATION MATTER INTERACTION
Basic knowledge of physics of matter
The basis of the interation of radiation with materials will be assessed, together with the knowledge of the techniques introduced during the lessons
Aim of the course is to give the basis of the mechanisms of energy transfer from ionizing radiation to materials and to introduce some applications based on the interaction of ionizing radiation with materials
Radioactivity. Sources of ionizing radiation. Energy transfer from radiation to materials. Application of experimental techniques based on the interaction radiation-matter.
Sources of ionizing radiation. Energy transfer from radiation to materials. Defects induced by radiation. Experimental techniques for the study of the effects of the interaction radiation-matter on the physical properties of the materials: nuclear techniques, as Accelerator Mass Spectrometry (AMS), luminescence techniques and X-ray Fluorescence (XRF).
