260045 PR Laboratory Nuclear and Isotope Physics (2008S)
Isotope detection and application
10.00 ECTS (8.00 SWS), SPL 26 - Physik
Continuous assessment of course work
Vorbesprechung: Di 11.3.2008, 12:00, nach der Vorlesung von Walter Kutschera, VERA-SR, Währinger Straße 17, Hoftrakt, 1. Stk., 1090 Wien.
Currently no class schedule is known.
Aims, contents and method of the course
This lab offers the opportunity to learn the technique and application of Accelerator Mass Spectrometry (AMS) by performing a 14C dating experiment at the Vienna Environmental Research Accelerator (VERA). In this way you experience working at a large scientific instrument, which is used for ultrasensitive mass spectrometry.
Assessment and permitted materials
Minimum requirements and assessment criteria
The participants will gain experience with a large scientific instrument through the performance of an AMS radiocarbon age determination. Further by the selection of this specific AMS application, the students will learn the basic principles of the 14C dating method as well. Students also learn to evaluate, to interpret and to present scientific data.
Practical training, literature search, presentation.
Eine Auswahl an geeigneter Literatur ist vor Beginn der praktischen Arbeiten in Sekretariat von VERA als Kopie erhältlich.
