Hands-on Training in Nuclear Forensics

The A-CINCH consortium would like to invite you to the Hands-on-Training in Nuclear Forensics. The course is organized by the Institute of Radioecology and Radiation Protection of the Leibniz University Hannover. It takes place on August 30 - September 01, 2022 in Hannover, Germany.

In this Hands-on-Training, physical and chemical separation techniques are used to perform ultra-trace-analysis of radioactive material sampled in contaminated environments, e.g. after nuclear powerplant accidents.

This course delivers basic understandings of sample preparation, analytical separation using auto- and electrodeposition, the use of scanning-electron-microscopes and ToF-SIMS measurements.

Participants should be interested in nuclear physics and analytical chemistry and posses basic knowledge of chemistry, the physics of radioactive material and should have gained some practical experience in the lab.

Distance learning via CINCH Moodle (see and sign up at moodle.cinch-project.eu) will take place before the practical course, which is accompanied by theoretical lessons in person.

All teaching will be in English.

For more information and registration to the course please visit the CINCH VET e-shop

The deadline for applications is July 15, 2022.

No course fee will be charged to the participants and a budget exists to support travel and accommodation expenditures of the participants.
