San Rafael, CA, 94901

Press release date: December 18, 2012

Berkeley Nucleonics, an authority in the nuclear science community, is offering an educational introduction to Nuclear Scintillation Detectors in an online training module.

Scintillation detectors are woven into the fabric of many nuclear applications. From medicine to industrial process controls to power, the nuclear community is increasingly addressing world concerns. As a member of this technical community for 50 years, we offer valuable perspectives and hands-on expertise to engineers just getting started. Our web-based general introduction course should serve as a springboard for deeper exploration in more granular fields.

The web-based course takes 4 hours and touches on many aspects of nuclear materials, from the components of a PMT to temperature effects on crystals. This introductory course will begin to familiarize students with common terminology (anode, photocathode, PMT, isotope identification, peak resolution, photodiode, etc) and offer students the flexibility to complete it on their own schedule.

As the nuclear sciences grow in popularity and applications, an entry level introduction course is a handy prerequisite to classroom or workshop discussions. The course is made available to instructors digitally as well to address any hosting requirements. Radiation detector training is also valuable to Hazmat professionals or Fire Fighters who seek a deeper understanding of the components in nuclear detection and isotope identification.

"BNC supports a wide range of customers varying from operational field needs to demanding research programs. We integrate those experiences into our widely acclaimed hands on training programs. This web module is our natural extension, allowing users to train when most convenient for them", remarked Robert Corsetti, the company's Director of Sales and Marketing. "The interactive nature of the training is really interesting also."

Please contact our office for a PPT copy of this training course.
