This course offers a fast-paced review of the basic physics of gamma-ray detection, formulation of spectra, interpretation of spectral data, interferences, and calculations.The course is two hours in duration and the American Academy of Health Physics will grant 4 Continuing Education Credits for completion (2010-00-004).Recent attendance at our Fundamentals of Gamma Spectroscopy I course is recommended but not required.
Objective: Upon completion of this course, student will have a working knowledge of gamma radiation detection, gamma-ray spectra content, spectrum evaluation, and gamma-ray spectroscopy analysis.
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.
