This course explores elements of nuclear physics for engineering students.
It covers basic properties of the nucleus and nuclear radiations; quantum
mechanical calculations of deuteron bound-state wave function and energy;
n-p scattering cross section; transition probability per unit time and
barrier transmission probability. It also covers binding energy and nuclear
stability; interactions of charged particles, neutrons, and gamma rays with
matter; radioactive decays; and energetics and general cross section
behavior in nuclear reactions.
