This course will contain both theoretical and practical excersises dealing with ionising radiation and its detection and effect on matter. We will treat subjects ranging from the origin of the radiation,i.e. the instability of the nucleus to the detection and effect on ammater. In addition we will discuss different applications of ionising radioation such as e.g. environmental monitoring and medicine.
