- Geiger-Muller (GM) Counter based experiments: To become acquainted with the operation and characteristics of the GM counter. To determine the best operating voltage and the resolving time of a GM counter. To determine the dead time of the GM counter. To investigate the Binomial, Poisson and Gaussian probability distributions by counting radiation events with a GM counter. To study the statistical fluctuations which occur in the disintegration rate of an essentially constant radioactive source. To use a GM detector to detect the gamma ray emitted by a short-lived excited isotope of Barium.
- Scintillation counter based experiments: To study the scattering of high-energy photons by electrons. Detection of scattered photons in a scintillation counter. Measuring energies of scattered photons and recoil electrons as function of scattering angle. Use a plastic scintillator as a target and record relative intensities of scattered photons at several scattering angles.
