Hands on Training on Radiochemical Spectroscopic Analysis

Ljubljana, 13-17 June 2022

Organised in the framework on the A-CINCH project, by Jozef Stefan Institute

Venue: Jozef Stefan Institute, Ljublijana

The course is organized by the A-CINCH Consortium and it consists of 2 parts:

  1. Distance learning via CINCH Moodle (see and sign up at
  2. Hands-on training that will take place at the Jožef Stefan Institute, Department of Environmental Sciences.

All teaching will be in English.


The course objectives are the following:

  • to get familiar with the radiochemical analysis of alpha, beta and gamma emitters by radiometric techniques
  • to gain an understanding of basic principles of radiochemical analysis
  • to get familiar with alpha, beta and gamma spectrometry
  • to be able to understand radiochemical analytical procedures and apply them to practical problems
  • to gain practical skills of working in radiochemistry laboratory
  • to gain practical skills in handling radioactive materials

All teaching will be in English.

Target Group:

This training course aims at delivering the basics of alpha, beta and gamma spectroscopy techniques for the determination of radionuclides in environmental samples. Participants should have interests in analytical radiochemistry, basic knowledge on radioactive decay, analytical chemistry and detection of radionuclides.
