SU-472 Genie-2000 Algorithms
image

November 7 - 9, 2017
Oak Ridge, TN

This 3-day course is a combination of lecture and practical examples covering optimization of the CANBERRA Genie 2000 algorithms. Detailed descriptions, examples, and classroom exercises are used to facilitate learning the basic analysis steps, selection of analysis algorithms, and their setup for specific applications. Approximately 60% of this course is presented in lecture format, with the remaining time allocated for hands-on exercises and discussions. The algorithms are used in Genie 2000 and other related CANBERRA software packages such as Apex InVivo and Apex-Gamma. This course is intended to provide students with sufficient knowledge and understanding to optimize the Genie 2000 gamma analysis process and ensure high-quality analysis results for their gamma spectroscopy measurement applications.

SU-476 Advanced ISOCS Measurements
image

November 28 - 30, 2017
Oak Ridge, TN

CANBERRA's SU-476 training course was designed to provide advanced instruction for current users of ISOCS, with emphasis on improved sample modeling, accuracy of analysis results, evaluation of total measurement uncertainty, and equipment deployment options for complex measurement applications. This course provides detailed recommendations for modeling complicated source distributions using the standard ISOCS geometry templates. Various advanced ISOCS applications will be discussed, including measurements of nuclide activity in near surface and subsurface soil, contamination on the surface of complex objects, and determination of nuclide activity vs. depth in sample material. Additional topics include use of ISOCS for in vivo counting, underwater radioactivity measurements, and airborne radioactivity measurements. Numerous practical examples and student exercises will be presented and discussed. Approximately 60% of this 3-day course will be presented in lecture format, with the remaining 40% allocated for group discussion and practical exercises.
