With the increased interest in the application of nuclear power in electric power generation and the associated engineering, a review of the principles of radioactivity is important. There have been changes in the units and measurement of radioactivity in the past 30 years.

This course is intended to be a review of the fundamentals of radioactivity; what it is, where it is found, what its characteristics are, how it is measured, and what its effects and its uses are. For those needing to go deeper into aspects of radioactivity, the course will serve as an introduction to such topics as calculations of decay constants and half-lives and health physics.
