Graduate Programs - USA
The Department of Chemistry at the California State University, Northridge offers graduate studies in Radiochemistry leading to the M.S. degree. An introductory radiochemistry course with accompanying laboratory, along with advanced special topics courses, are offered. The facilities at CSUN include a modern wet radiochemistry laboratory, extensive instrumentation for gamma-ray spectrometry (intrinsic Ge and Ge(Li) detectors coupled to microcomputer-based multichannel analyzers), Pu-Be and Cf-252 neutron sources, and extensive computing facilities, all within a new (1991) Chemistry Department complex. Access to the TRIGA reactor at nearby UC Irvine and to the 46-MeV cyclotron at UC Los Angeles is feasible.

Radiochemistry research at CSUN is under the direction of David A. Miller (Ph.D., University of California, Irvine, 1976) and is concerned with: (1) the production of radionuclides for use in biochemical or nuclear medicine applications, and (2) trace elemental analysis using nuclear activation techniques.

Teaching assistantships are available. For more information about the graduate program at CSUN please contact:
