ETP 2212 Radiation Detection Principles

This course examines biological effects and risks associated with exposure to ionizing radiation, radiation detection and measurement principles, radiological survey and analysis instruments, radioactivity and radioactive decay, sources of radiation, and environmental monitoring for radiation. Students learn stochastic versus deterministic effects, units of exposure, dose and dose equivalent, external and internal dosimetry, control of external and internal exposure, and detection and instrumentation systems for measuring dose.
