The school was co-sponsored by the IEEE Nuclear and Plasma Sciences Society and the South Africa – CERN consortium and it was held at iThemba LABS in the Western Cape 7th-17th 2018.
The goal of the school was:
To train students in the area of radiation detectors and its applications.
To enhance the development of real-time system in South Africa.
To promote the participation of young scientists in radiation measurements and related fields.
Four EasyPet units were setup and interfaces with laptop computers. A number of exercises were followed. This included settig up the device, investigating SiPM (silicon photo-multiplier) characteristics with a voltage scan, observing single pulses, identifying the multi-photon spectrum, gamma coincidences and PET imaging.
