Interactions of Ionizing Radiation With Matter: Application in Particle Astrophysics

This course studies the physics of interactions between ionizing radiation and matter and how those interactions can be used to study radiation. Critical aspects of experimental design including shielding from background radiation, discrimination between types of ionizing radiation and efficient detection of radiation are evaluated. In addition electronic processing and recording of signals as well as numerical and statistical analysis of data are studied. Prerequisites: PHYS 5227 - Selected Topics in Theoretical Physics - Nuclear Physics or equivalent; PHYS 5506 - Advanced Electromagnetic Theory I or equivalent; PHYS 5406, Quantum Mechanics I or equivalent. Prerequisites may be waived at the discretion of the Instructor(s). Lec. 6 cr
