Introduction to Gamma Spectroscopy

24 July 2020


Webinar, 12:00 - 13:00

This webinar was in partnership with AURPO.  You can view the presentation here and the video from the webinar below.

The techniques of gamma-ray spectroscopy/spectrometry have a broad range of applications from medical imaging to environmental monitoring. This webinar focussed on how large gamma-ray spectrometer arrays are being used to uncover to some of the outstanding questions about the structure and properties of the atomic nucleus.

David Joss, presented this webinar.  David Joss graduated with a PhD from the University of Liverpool in 1998 for his research into nuclear superdeformation in rare-earth nuclei. He has held lectureships at Staffordshire and Keele Universities before joining the Nuclear Physics Group at STFC Daresbury Laboratory in 2001. David was awarded an EPSRC Advanced Research Fellowship in 2005 to investigate the structure of heavy neutron-deficient nuclei at the proton drip line. David is a Professor of Nuclear Physics at the University of Liverpool and a Fellow of the Institute of Physics.

David’s research interests focus on understanding the structure of exotic nuclei using in-beam gamma-ray spectroscopy and radioactive decay correlation techniques. He has discovered 10 new isotopes at the limits of known nuclei and elucidated the excited states in more than 30 nuclei for the first time, which have revealed features related to the evolution of nuclear collectivity and structure above the N=82 shell closure.
