In this course the interaction processes, described in the radiation interaction course, are applied on a macroscopic scale, leading to quantities such as kerma, exposure and absorbed dose. Basic concepts such as energy transferred, net energy transferred, energy imparted, Fano's theorem and W/e are also covered. Different types of equilibrium, and cavity theories (Bragg-Gray, Spencer-Attix, Burlin, large cavity) are discussed in detail. Practical aspects and dosimetric perturbation effects for detectors are also discussed and an introduction to micro- and internal dosimetry is given. The course includes compulsory laboratory work.
