Skills to be acquired in this module
Hochenergiestrahlenphysik: Grundlegendes Verständnis der physikalischen Grundlagen der Hochenergie-Strahlenphysik (im Energiebereich ab ca. 106 eV). Die Studierenden sollen die universellen Ansätze der physikalischen Beschreibung der Erzeugung, Beschleunigung, Wechselwirkung und Detektion hochenergetischer Strahlung disziplinübergreifend kennen lernen.
Space Environment: Basic understanding of the main components of the near-Earth space environment. The students shall become familiar with die different types of radiation and particles in space, their physical characteristics and their effects on hardware and humans in space. The interdisciplinary nature of these topics shall become clear.
Module contents
Hochenergiestrahlenphysik: Grundlagen der Hochenergie-Strahlenphysik, Strahlenarten in Umwelt, Kosmos und Medizin, Kosmische Strahlung, Grundlagen der Astroteilchenphysik, irdische und kosmische Beschleuniger, Wechselwirkung von Strahlung mit Materie, Detektionsmechanismen und Dosimetrie, Technische Realisierungen zur Beschleunigung und Detektion.
Space Environment: Overview of radiation and particles in space and their energy ranges. The upper Earth atmosphere, the spectrum of the sun and its variability, plasma, solar- terrestrial interactions, the radiation belts of Earth, cosmic rays, meteoroids and meteors, near-Earth objects, space debris. Effects and potential protection measures.
