Registration is open for the 6th International Conference on Collective Motion in Nuclei under Extreme Conditions (COMEX6). Visit the website at http://www.comex6.tlabs.ac.za for more information.
Day one of COMEX6, the 29th October 2018, will take place at iThemba LABS with a special opening session which the Minister of the Department of Science and Technology Ms Mmamoloko Kubayi-Ngubane, will attend. The rest of the conference, from 30 October until 2 November will take place at the Protea Hotel Fire and Ice in Cape Town.
|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.
