Abstract or Summary
  • Digital Instrumentation and Detection is becoming the future of radiation detection and measurement. Computers are able to perform digitally what before would have taken an extensive array of analog equipment. The art of teaching radiation detection and measurement is following this same pattern of a shift from purely analog to digital, computer-based equipment. This thesis will involve designing software composed of digital equipment that will allow for distance students to learn the fundamentals of radiation detection and measurement. It will do so by using LabVIEW to create three detectors including the GM tube, Proportional Counter and Scintillator. The other associated instrumentation equipment that will be modeled includes a pre-amplifier, amplifier, SCA, MCA, and dual-counter/timer The end goal is that distance students can successfully learn the same fundamental principles of radiation detection as their on-campus counterparts.
