NUCL 3740U – Scientific Instrumentation


This course is designed to instruct students how to set, use and analyze the appropriate sensor technology (transducers) for measurements related to nuclear technology. In the course the student will learn how to perform experimental data analysis, how various components of sensing devices inter-relate (for example, relationships between amplifiers, transformers, filters, etc.), the operating principles of transducers for physical measurements, including, but not limited to: ionizing radiation, displacement and area, pressure, flow, temperature, force, torque, strain, motion, vibration, and air pollution. The student will learn both analog and digital techniques for data analysis, including multiplexing, data conversion and error detection and correction. The laboratory exercises will give the student hands-on experience designing measurement systems. Proper data reporting techniques will also be emphasized.
