Module "Radiochemistry" (Chem-Ma-M14)
The students are able to deal critically with questions about radioactivity and radiation on a scientific basis. They know the different types of radiation, their spectra, measurement and physical basics. They know why radioactivity occurs in which elements, what effects it has on humans and the environment, and how it can be applied technically. In addition, students are able to handle open radioactive materials.
The module includes the topics of radioactivity (types of radiation, nuclide map, nuclear structure, nuclear stability, transformation laws, equilibria), radioanalytics, nuclear technology and nuclear waste disposal.
The module consists of lecture (2 SWS), practical course (3 SWS) and self-study.
The language of the lectures is German.
