The Gamma Gamma Angular Correlation Experiment


Measurement of the quantum numbers of nuclear energy levels is one of the major tasks of nuclear physics. One of the ways to measure quantum numbers is measurement of the correlation between the directions of emmision of two gamma rays that were emmited consecutively from the same nucleus.

Topics of the experiment:

-The physics of radiation (Beta, Gamma, multipolarity and polarization of gamma radiation).
-The Gamma ray detection and time coincidence techniques.
-Experience in planing the experiment.
-Experience in data analysis.
