Abstract Title: The Advanced Undergraduate Nuclear and Atomic Laboratory Course at the University of North Texas
Abstract: The UNT Department of Physics periodically offers an upper level elective undergraduate laboratory course covering a variety of topics related to nuclear and atomic physics.  Laboratory exercises explore subjects ranging from gamma, x-ray, and alpha-particle spectroscopy to Rutherford scattering, particle-induced x-ray emission, and nuclear reactions.  A lecture component complements the laboratory exercises by addressing pertinent theoretical material.  For the laboratory exercises, students working in small groups utilize facilities in the Ion Beam Modification and Analysis Laboratory, including a 2.5 MV Van de Graaff accelerator and an array of detectors, radioactive sources, and nuclear electronics.
