    Simulation of Gamma-ray Detection. With this simulation software you can selectively turn on and off the different absorption mechanisms that apply for detection of gamma-rays: Full-energy absorption ("photo-effect"), Compton scattering and pair formation. In this way each type of interaction can be studied undisturbed by other processes, something which is impossible to do in real life. The software also allows you to wary the width of the detector response-function, thus enabling you to model different types of gamma detectors (HPGe, NaI, etc.).

    Introduction
    This is a rather simple LabView program that allows you to simulate the count rate that would be detected from two desintegrating nuclei with different half-lives. In addition to the emissions from the two nuclei, the detector would also measure a constant background. This background can be specified in the simulation (or omitted if set to zero).

    NucWik provide teaching tools and ideas for radiochemistry teaching. Everything from simple drawings, diagrams or pictures of basic principles and typical equipment to more fancy stuff (we hope!) like animations and video-snippets can be put on NucWik - provided there is no copyright restrictions. It should be clearly understood that by entering material on NucWik you agree to let other people use your material - for non commercial/no profit purposes1. Do not enter material which you have "borrowed" from somebody else (or a web-site), you have no right to publish such other peoples material. If discovered, such material will be deleted from NucWik and the rightful owners notified about the violation.
    Material on NucWik is not restricted to just single files. On the contrary, one of the ideas behind NucWik is that teachers can put together small or large topic modules. Such a module can be suggested teaching paths for e.g. explaining how gamma-radiation is detected or what the principles behind the Szilard–Chalmers Reaction is. But it can also be much more comprehensive, e.g. a complete description of a Szilard–Chalmers laboratory exercise, including texts explaining the theory, step-by-step student instructions, instructions for the teaching staff, safety aspects, etc., etc.

    Welcome to NucWik!
    Welcome to the NucWik site for teaching material for Nuclear and Radiochemistry. Everybody is welcome to use this wiki, but it's primarily aimed at teaching at Universities. At NucWik you will find ready made texts, explanations, illustrations, calculation exercises, laboratory exercises, etc. to help you in teaching Nuclear and Radiochemistry (NRC). As it is a wiki, we also hope that you will help us to develop even more and better material!

    HPGe γ-spectroscopyIf you wish to use GammaLab, you will need to book a timeslot with the University of environmental samplesHannover. You also need to download the following plug-ins:
    ni.com/download/labview-run-time-engine-2016/6069/en/
    http://digital.ni.com/express.nsf/previewbycode/visionrte?opendocument
    Once you have downloaded the plug-ins and confirmed your timeslot, please click on the link below to access the GammaLab.

    GammaLab
    In GammaLab a user can choose a selection of samples and measure them with an HP-Ge-detector. Samples range from ordinary drinking water to soil samples from nuclear hazard sites as well as calibration standards.
    ...
    On top you will see the different control tabs: “Sample selection”, “Detector operation”, “Log” and “Help”. The first tab, “Sample selection”, allows you to select between 6 different samples: a calibration one and 5 unknown ones. You can select the desired sample from the drop-down menu, and validate your choice by pressing “Put selection in detector”. You can close the shielding of the detector by clicking on the “Open/close Shielding” button. You can always check the status of the experiment in the window under the “Open/close shielding” button. During each movement of the robot are all buttons greyed out, so you cannot give two commands at a time.
    You can quit the experiment by pressing on the bottom left the "Log out and exit" button.
    {Detector operation.png}
    In the “Detector operation” tab you introduce the measurement time (default 600s) and you can start and stop the measurement of the sample with the HPGe- detector. The spectrum is building up in real time in the window on the right. After you have finished measuring your sample, you can send the results to your email address. You will receive a text file, which contains information regarding the sample you measured, the status of the shielding and the duration of the measurement, followed by the γ-spectrum, given as channel number of counts.
