2nd NSSC Summer School in Nuclear Analytical Techniques
August 18, 2013 – August 23, 2013
Topic: Nuclear Analytical Techniques
This year the summer school will follow immediately after the NSSC summer school at UC Berkeley (August 12-16). The program will consist of some lectures, but mostly hands-on activities involving nuclear analytical techniques. Students will perform Neutron Activation Analysis using the McClellan Nuclear Research Center, study proton elastic scattering at the Crocker cyclotron facility, gain experience and skills in counting with NaI and HPGe crystals, and learn about detectors and analysis techniques important across a broad range of science and industry.
It is open to graduate and upper-level undergraduate students. Applications are due by July 1 at: http://lux.physics.ucdavis.edu/nssc_summerschool/
