Spanish Nuclear Society Young Generation is organizing a new edition of the Basic Course on Nuclear Fusion, intended for students and those interested in nuclear science and technology.
The main objective of the course is to train participants and bring them closer to the most relevant aspects of science and nuclear technology. In this way, the course covers basic topics, such as nuclear physics, nuclear power plants, nuclear safety, fuel, wastes, dismantling, future nuclear power plants, other applications for nuclear energy, and its role in the face of climate change sustainable development. This course is a way to bring the annual SNE annual meeting to the city that hosts the convention.
Basic Course on Nuclear Fusion
Nuclear Young People will teach its Basic Course on Nuclear Fusion (CBFN) on Thursday, September 27 at the Ávila Higher Polytechnic School (University of Salamanca). The course, which is free and has open access through prior registration on the Nuclear Young People website, will begin at 3:45 pm and will be taught by young experts in the field.
This course covers all issues related to nuclear fusion, with emphasis on the two most advanced technologies today, inertial confinement and magnetic confinement. The following is the syllabus for the course:
1) Introduction to the nuclear physics of Fusion I.
2) Introduction to the nuclear physics of Fusion II.
3) Fusion by magnetic confinement.
4) Fusion by inertial confinement.
5) Challenges of nuclear fusion.
6) Fusion in perspective.
7) The latest in Magnetic Confinement Fusion.
8) The latest in Inertial Confinement Fusion.
9) Nuclear Fusion and sustainable development.
Finally, the Basic Course on Nuclear Fusion Course Book, written and edited by Nuclear Young People, can be downloaded free of charge on the Nuclear Young People website.
Nuclear Young People will teach its Basic Course on Medical Applications of Nuclear Technology (CBAMTN) on Wednesday, October 17(*) at the University Nursing School of Ávila. This course will be offered jointly to the nursing degree students from USAL and UCAV starting at 3:30 pm.
This course, which is being offered for the first time, aims to give insight into various nuclear technology techniques and applications in the medical field, both for diagnosis and therapy, and to make the capabilities of nuclear technology beyond electricity production known. The course will be divided into 6 subjects: 1) Foundations of Medical Physics. 2) Radiodiagnosis. 3) Radiotherapy. 4) Nuclear Medicine. 5) Radiological Protection in Medicine. 6) Developments and the Future.
(*) The date for the Basic Course on Medical Applications of Nuclear Technology had to be moved outside of the Annual Meeting week (Sept. 24-28) due to the Nursing school schedule.
