Workshop on: Spectrum, Presentation, Analysis, Manipulation, and Simulation (SPAMS) @ iThemba LABS, Cape Town
Nov 12 – Nov 14 all-day
Lecturers/facilitators: Dr Tanya Hutton (Dept. of Physics, UCT), Dr Pete Jones (Dept. of Subatomic Physics, iThemba LABS), Dr Philippos Papadakis (Univ. of Liverpool), Dr Carl Unsworth (STFC Daresbury Laboratory, UK )
Venue: Auditorium and Computer Lab, iThemba LABS

Students will be introduced briefly to different data acquisition systems used in nuclear physics experiments involving gamma-­‐ray spectrometry. Ways to analyze these spectra to determine energy calibrations, peak areas, efficiency calibrations and peak-­‐to-­‐total ratios, amongst others, will be discussed. Ways to convert spectra from one format to another (for software compatibility) and to present publication/presentation quality spectra will also be discussed. Students will also be given a brief introduction to spectrum simulation. The workshop will involve a mix of lectures and student hands-­‐on work in the iThemba LABS Computer Lab.
