September 14-16, 2005 - Slovenia
6th Radioactivity, Radionuclides & Radiation Training Course with

The 6th European Commission sponsored training course on Radioactivity, Radionuclides and Radiation with was held at the Nuclear Training Centre of the Jozef Stefan Institute in Ljubljana, Slovenia from the 14th to 16th of September, 2005.

Did you know that ...
  • a natural nuclear reactor operated underground in Central Africa around two billion years ago?
  • compact, high power lasers can now be used as intense sources of nuclear radiation in the laboratory?
  • a seemingly innocuous black cube ("Haigerloch" cube) was recently identified as uranium from Germany's covert nuclear reactor programme during the Second World War?
  • 75,000 patients are treated annually by inhaling high concentrations of radon gas in underground healing galleries such as Bad Gastein in Austria?
Recent developments on the Oklo nuclear geyser, laser transmutation (download below), nuclear forensic science and radiation hormesis were just a few of the special topics covered at the sixth Nuclear Science training course with

What made this course unique was the emphasis on interactive and hands-on learning through the use of - a powerful and versatile web-based software package for calculations on radio-nuclides and their radiation. With examples, exercises and dedicated case studies in, a whole variety of core and topical issues in nuclear science and technology were presented by experts in their respective fields.
