Nucleonica Training on Nuclear Security, 7-8 November, BfS Berlin, 2017
This 1-day training course took place at the offices of the Federal Office for Radiation Protection (Bundesamt für Strahlenschutz BfS) in Berlin, during the 7-8 November 2017. This was an intermediate level training course which focused mainly on the Nucleonica core applications with emphasis on Case Studies. A detailed description of nuclear data with particular reference to the various Nucleonica nuclear databases was given. Core applications were demonstrated through the use of Nucleonica applications such as the Radiological Converter, Nuclide Mixtures, Decay Engine++, and Dosimetry and Shielding H*(10).
BetasinTissueStopping of 500 keV beta particels in 1 mm tissue.

The main differences between the
1. Radiological Converter vs. Mass Activity Converter and
2. Dosimetry & Shieldimg++ vs. Dosimetry & Shielding H*(10)
were described in detail. Nuclear security related case studies were given on the identification of suspected nuclear and radioactive materials using Cambio and WESPA++.
In total, 12 persons took part in the course from the various BfS locations in Germany.
