Training in nuclear instrumentation
Training activities in the field of nuclear instrumentation encompasses various topics such as radiation detection, signal processing, radiation spectrometry, standard instrument and applications, covered in basic to specific trainings such as:
- Introduction to operation and use of radiation detectors, measurement systems and their applications, basic level, 2 weeks, generally organized at regional level in cooperation with NSIL.
- Training in nuclear instrumentation, intermediate level, 8 to 10 weeks, organized at NSIL and covering various aspects including the basic principles of radiation detection, analog and digital electronics, nuclear spectrometry and standard applications.
- Training in nuclear electronics, maintenance and repair, intermediate level, 4 to 5 weeks, generally organized in cooperation with NSIL at regional level.
- Advanced trainings dedicated to the development, interfacing and utilization of nuclear instrumentation systems, through joint ICTP-IAEA training (2 week), or fellowship training (individual or small group for 1 to 6 months training) performed at NSIL or in a state-of-the-art Institution.
Additional and specific trainings, including train the trainers courses, can be tailored and designed according to the needs expressed by Member States.
