knowledge of the topics treated in the courses of Physics, during the First Degree, is required.
The evaluation consists of establishing the acquired knowledge on the basis of the defined educational objectives.
The examination is an oral colloquium concerning the topics treated during the lessons.
objective of the course is to teach some basic concepts regarding mechanisms of radiation-matter interaction. At the end of the course the student will have gained knowledge about the different types of interactions of ionizing radiations with matter, about the most important kinds of radiation detectors, about the more relevant investigation techniques which uses ionization radiations for material studies.
