ITRAC-3: EC/JRC Nuclear Science Training Course - 3rd International Training Course on Illicit Trafficking and Radiological Consequences with Nucleonica, Karlsruhe, 11-13 May 2011.

The ITRAC-3, 3rd International Training Course on Illicit Trafficking and Radiological Consequences with NUCLEONICA took place in Karlsruhe, Germany, from the 11-13th May 2011. This was the third course devoted specifically to the use of Nucleonica within the fields of Illicit Trafficking and Radiological Consequences. The course was aimed at persons who provide technical support (measurements, interpreting results, drawing conclusions, making recommendations) for the actions in response to illicit trafficking incidents and radiological events. The participants included physicists, radio-chemists, health physicists, technical experts from national law enforcement agencies and regulatory authorities, who may be involved in the assessment of such events.

Guest speakers included Dr. Andrey Berlizov from the IAEA's Safeguards department. ITU speakers included K. Mayer, M. Wallenius, J. Galy, J. Zsigrai, and E. Hrnecek. From the Nucleaona team speakers included J. Magill and R. Dreher.

In total, 21 participants from Switzerland, Turkey, Macedonia, Azerbaijan, Latvia, Romania, and Belgium took part in the course. The course organisers acknowledge the financial assistance from the JRC's Enlargement and Integration Action (E&IA) which provided funding for participants from Candidate Countries, Potential Candidate Countries, and ENP Countries.

A highlight of the training course was a live demonstation on how to create a gamma spectrum for the emissions from the Fukushima reactor accident. In a first step, a reactor simulation was performed using webKORIGEN to determine the strongest gamma emitting nuclides. With these nuclides a nuclide mixture was then created. Thereafter, using the gamma spectrum generator, gamma spectra were produced for both NaI and HPGe detectors. Finally it was shown how these spectra could be analaysed using the Nucleonica tools Cambio and WESPA.

Testimonials:

"Thank you very much for the Nucleonica ITRAC3 course and the presentation of your remarkable work for developing such useful modules. This is not only my opinion but the opinion for all participants at the course. Such modules and their applicability will be of great importance for future use in my institute and therefore having a premium access account will be required."

Lidija Nikolovska, Institute of Public Health, Republic of Macedonia


Practical exercises helped us to understand everything easily. Thank you for it.

J. Aghayev, Azerbaijan Academy of Sciences


The organisation staff did a great job by providing this training cours. So thank you very much for this. It was shown, that Nucleonica is a very powerfull tool, even for beginners up to pros. in our daily job there will be further application of this tool for sure. The training course combined very good talks, which are related to reality, and a lot of short exercises which are more or less done in one or two minutes each. the teachers are always up to answere questions and help with serveral problems. So we felt very comfortablein any minute. So once again: Thank to the Nucleonica-Team!

T. Lorenz, Paul Scherrer Institute Switzerland


ITRAC-3 was useful for my current and future studies. Nucleonica will provide easier calculations and save time. Thank you for your effort.....

S. Yusan, Ege University


The Nucleonica training course was well organized. It was a good combination between lectures and practical exercises. Nucleonica is a powerful tool and easy to use. For my future scientific work I will use Nucleonica. WESPA is a great tool! But if you select an energy peak you will get only a list of proposed nuclides. It would be great if the abundance for gamma-rays of a nuclide will be shown, too. Also it would be great if you can set the energy tolerance, for example to 2 keV. At the moment you detect one peak in the spectrum, for example Bi-207 at 570 keV, and the other peaks at 1064 keV and 1770 keV you have to detect by hand, too. It would be easier to detect one peak of the nuclide and all the others will be shown and related in the peak list (by assigned nuclide), too. Because if you have a spectrum of a nuclide mixture it is very difficult to analyze the spectrum. Whats about the efficiency correction? Is there any possibility to do an efficiency correction? Whats about multiple nuclide selection? (Sometimes nuclides overlap) It would be great if there exists an UNDO button! I would like to thank the whole Nucleonica team for the great introduction into Nucleonica and the interesting talks!

B. Hammer, Paul Scherrer Institute, Switzerland


This training course was really tutorial, informative and well organized. Thank you...

S. Melsa, Macedonia


The Nucleonica Training Course was very well organised, and the lectures were well balanced with the practical exercises. Very interesting examples. The gained knowledge and insight will be useful in my future scientific activities and I will recommend I will recommend Nucleonica to my colleagues. Thank you!
