Training Course on "How to Measure and Analyze luminescence signals for Potential Applications in Radiation Dosimetry: Theory and Computational Procedures"

All information

The training course is a satellite event to the EURADOS Annual Meeting in Porto, Portugal.
It will take place as a meeting in presence at University of Porto only! There is no option for online participation.

The course takes place from 08:00-12:30 GMT at

Faculty of Engineering of the University of Porto (FEUP)  
R. Dr. Roberto Frias 
4200-465 Porto , Portugal 



PART I:                    Steve McKeever, Emeritus Regents Professor of Physics, Oklahoma State University, USA

“Garbage in: Garbage Out”. Understanding What You Measure is Critical

The discussion will cover understanding kinetics, what the standard equations mean and don’t mean, how to collect the data, essential basic analytical tools, rudimentary and novel peak fitting approaches.


PART II:                   Vasilis Pagonis, Emeritus Professor of Physics, McDaniel College, USA and Associate Editor, Radiation Measurements

Luminescence signal analysis with open access software in Python and R

Practical examples will be demonstrated using software codes in Python and R for TL/OSL analysis, using actual experimental data files from dosimetric materials. Codes will be made available at the workshop in the form of Jupyter notebooks, which participants will be able to download freely from the web. Using their own laptops, participants can log into their Google Drive account and can run the codes immediately in the Google cloud, within the so called Google Colab.


The training course is organised by EURADOS Working Group 10 "Retrospective Dosimetry".


The participation fee is 200 per attendee.

Participants affiliated with EURADOS sponsoring institutions (see are offered a 10 % discount. The participation fee is 180 €.
