Physique atomique, nucléaire et des radiations
2.0 credits
22.5 h

Teacher(s)
Piotrzkowski Krzysztof ;
Language
Français
Main themes
Basic notions of matter structure, electronic structure of atom, atomic nucleus (static and energetic descriptions) and radioactivity : disintegration types, decay laws, radiation filiations. Radioactive sources (natural and artificial) - Radiation interactions with matter of charged ionising particles (electrons and heavy ions) and neutral particles (neutron, gamma) - Basic principles of radiation detection : semi-conductors, organic and inorganic scintillations and associated electronics .
Aims
The objective of this course is to remind the students from other orientations than physics the basic principles and the fundamental notions of atomic, nuclear and radiation physics, which they will need to follow their specialization (Radioprotection, Nuclear Medicine, Radio-pharmacy, Nuclear Engineer, …) . We develop, notably, this basic knowledge to suit the specific needs of the auditorium.
