List of Laboratory Exercises:

**Handling and Measuring Radioactive Material**- This is a introduction on how to work in a rad. lab. The student will lern basic radiation protection principles and do some basic work with natural uranium, e.g. prepare a counting sample by filtering UO_{3}from an aquous solution. This sample is then used to investigate basic counting principles and counting statistics.**The**- A^{234}Th/^{234}Pa Radionuclide Generator^{234}Th/^{234}Pa radionuclide generator is prepared by extracting thorium on a DOWEX ion-exchanger collumn.^{234}Pa is milked from this collumn and the half life is determined.- Gamma spectroscopy
**Liquid-Scintillation Counting (LSC)**- The basic principles behind LSC is taught by measuring different beta-emitting samples. Quench-correction curves is obtained manually and explained.**Isotope dilution analysis****Neutron activation analysis (NAA)****Using tracers to investigate liquid-liquid extraction (LLE)**- Distribution ratios and yield will be measured using radiotracers. The measurements will be done with HPGe gamma-detectors and calibrating and using this is an important part of the exercise.**Szilard-Chalmers reaction****Working with large amounts of radioactivity**
