Quality control and quality assurance in applying nuclear analytical techniques are gaining increasing importance. Quality and reliability of analytical results form the basis for the identification and determination of reliable material data.
This practice-oriented training course provides the necessary basic knowledge, shows frequent sources of errors and faults in sample preparation and measuring procedures, and presents possible solutions.
The advanced training event addresses senior laboratory staff and all such persons from nuclear power plants, research laboratories, official Federal, State and local measuring laboratories, etc., who perform the task of evaluating and assessing radioanalytical measuring data. The training course will close with a site visit of the European Commission's Institute for Transuranium Elements as a certified laboratory.
FTU is a member of the worldwide "ALMERA network (Analytical Laboratories for Measuring Environmental Radioactivity) of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) for the determination of radionuclides in environmental samples.
Topics of the training course are:,- Quality Management in a Radiochemical Laboratory,- Traceability and Standardisation,- External Quality Control (Intercomparison, Proficiency Test),- Internal Quality Assurance (Control Charts, Training Programmes),- Quality Assurance by Accreditation,- Quality Management in Gamma-Spectrometry,- Novel Methods for Density and Sum Correction,- Estimation of Uncertainties in Analysis (Recommendations of EURACHEM, IAEA),- Uncertainties in Strontium Analysis ,- Uncertainty Calculation in Alpha-Spectrometry,- Determination of Characteristic Values (LLD etc.),- Visit to the Europeans Commission's Institute for Transuranium Elements as an Accredited Laboratory
