The aim of the course is to give insight into the modern measurement methods of neutron physics and their applications in industry, research and medical sciences.


The basic properties of the neutron and the atomic nucleus.


Lectures. In the course a visit to the research reactor in Studsvik is organized. Three laborations at the department + one litterature study with an oral presentation is also included in the course.


Compendium that is sold by the department.


To pass the course, written laboration reports, two written exercises and a litterature study with oral presentation are required. För higher grades, an additional oral exam is also required.
