This course offers a fast-paced review of the basic principles of gamma spectroscopic analysis.The course includes a review of the nature and origins of gamma-emitting radioactivity, basic physics of gamma interac¬tion with matter, consequences of gamma interactions on gamma spectra, gamma spectroscopy system com¬ponents and calibrations, gamma spectroscopy analy¬sis methods, and interpretation of gamma spectroscopy data.The course is two hours in duration and the American Academy of Health Physics will grant 4 Continuing Education Credits for completion.
Objective: Upon completion of this course, students will have a working knowledge of radioactive decay schemes, radiation emissions, gamma radiation detection, and the principles of the laboratory gamma spectroscopy process.
Noncredit courses do not produce academic credit nor appear on a Colorado State University academic transcript.
Dr. Johnson's research in the laser research lab is focused on safety and laser injury recovery and the acute effects of ionizing radiation. Dr. Johnson received his Ph.D. in health physics from the School of Health Sciences at Purdue University.
