SU-474 Basic ISOCS Measurements
image

November 13 - 16, 2018
Oak Ridge, TN

Mirion’s SU-474-4 training course was designed to introduce the basic features of the ISOCS Efficiency Calibration Software and the use of ISOCS for in situ gamma spectroscopy measurement applications where traditional “source-based” calibrations may not be practical. Students will also be introduced to additional CANBERRA software features and specialized hardware components that are typically integrated with the ISOCS software. Approximately 60% of this 4-day course will be presented in lecture format, with the remaining 40% allocated for group discussion and practical exercises.

SU-476 Advanced ISOCS Measurements
image

November 27 - 29, 2018
Oak Ridge, TN

Mirion's SU-476 training course was designed to provide advanced instruction for current users of ISOCS, with emphasis on improved sample modeling, accuracy of analysis results, evaluation of total measurement uncertainty, and equipment deployment options for complex measurement applications. This course provides detailed recommendations for modeling complicated source distributions using the standard ISOCS geometry templates. Various advanced ISOCS applications will be discussed, including measurements of nuclide activity in near surface and subsurface soil, contamination on the surface of complex objects, and determination of nuclide activity vs. depth in sample material. Additional topics include use of ISOCS for in vivo counting, underwater radioactivity measurements, and airborne radioactivity measurements. Numerous practical examples and student exercises will be presented and discussed. Approximately 60% of this 3-day course will be presented in lecture format, with the remaining 40% allocated for group discussion and practical exercises.

SU-477 LabSOCS Measurements
image

October 30 - November 1, 2018
Itasca, IL

Mirion's SU-477 training course was designed to provide comprehensive instruction for proper use of the LabSOCS Efficiency Calibration Software. This course will focus on proper selection and use of the standard LabSOCS geometry templates for accurate modeling of samples and creation of optimized efficiency calibration files. Lecture and discussion topics will include: use of the "Geometry Composer" interface, typical applications for LabSOCS sample geometry templates, tips for proper template parameter entry, use of the Materials Library editor, and proper use of LabSOCS calibration files within Genie 2000. Common sample geometries (including paper disk, charcoal-filled air filter cartridge, polyethylene bottle, and Marinelli beaker) will be selected as practical examples to demonstrate the complete LabSOCS efficiency calibration process. Cascade summing corrections will be discussed as a method to improve the accuracy of nuclide activity calculations during routine sample analyses. Approximately 60% of this 3-day course will be presented in lecture format, with the remaining 40% allocated for group discussion and practical exercises.
