Third year practical training


The purpose of this assignment is to acquire, using as a guide specific experience for each student group, the tools and concepts essential to an understanding of nuclear physics.
Thus we propose the following steps:

  • Familiarity with instrumentation,
  • Study the statistics of nuclear phenomena,
  • Study of interactions of alpha, beta and gamma radiation with matter,
  • Study of coincidences for the calculation of the activity of a source.



All documents are only available in French, but the teaching and report can generally be given in English.


The Particle Data Group provides a number of documents which may be of use during the course:
