Experiments in Nuclear Science is an introductory-level laboratory manual providing hands-on opportunities for developing insights into the origins and properties of nuclear radiations, their interactions with matter, their detection and measurement, and their applications in the physical and life sciences. Based on experiments successfully performed by hundreds of students at Rutgers University and the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse, this manual can be used as a stand-alone volume or alongside a textbook such as Introduction to Nuclear Science by Jeff C. Bryan.
About the Author
Jeff C. Bryan joined the chemistry faculty of the University of Wisconsin–La Crosse in 2002, where he has been promoted to full professor. He currently teaches nuclear and general chemistry courses, but has also taught radiation physics and analytical chemistry. His scholarship focuses on making nuclear science more accessible to students with limited science and math backgrounds. As part of this effort, he authored a textbook titled Introduction to Nuclear Science, and coauthored a lab manual titled Experiments in Nuclear Science.
