Experiments in Nuclear Science
ORTEC supports academic teaching laboratories within a wide range of disciplines; Nuclear Engineering and Technology, Physics, Chemistry, Biology, and Radio-pharmacy.
With a broad range of NIM instrumentation, ORTEC offers modules specific to pulse-processing applications associated with Charged Particle and Gamma-Ray spectroscopy, modules for pulse counting and fast timing, as well as modules and digital electronics for generalized multichannel analysis. This modularity can provide a cost-effective and a re-configurable approach to the instrumentation of teaching experiments.
ORTEC also provides a selection of pre-scripted teaching laboratory experiments for use in nuclear science undergraduate laboratories. These experiments are based on the AN34 Laboratory Manual.
ORTEC’s objective is to partner with teaching facilities in universities and other educational institutions to add to and further develop these pre-scripted experiments.
If you have developed teaching experiments employing ORTEC products, we would welcome the opportunity to include them on this site for others to use. We are happy to acknowledge the institution for the contribution of the experimental script, and to provide a link to the contributor's departmental web site.
