        Image taken by Fluke TiS20 visualization by LabVIEW 10m

        An interface is a shared boundary across which two or more separate components of a computer system exchange information. The exchange can be between software, computer hardware, peripheral devices, humans and combinations of these. Some computer hardware devices, such as a touchscreen, can both send and receive data through the interface, while others such as a mouse or microphone may only provide an interface to send data to a given system
        Hardware interfaces exist in many of the components, such as the various buses, storage devices, other I/O devices, etc. A hardware interface is described by the mechanical, electrical and logical signals at the interface and the protocol for sequencing them (sometimes called signaling)
        Software interfaces provide access to computer resources (such as memory, CPU, storage, etc.) of the underlying computer system; direct access (i.e. not through well designed interfaces) to such resources by software can have major ramifications—sometimes disastrous ones—for functionality and stability.
        The Fluke Ti20 Imager (hereafter, “the Imager”) is a state-of-the-art, lightweight, pistol- grip style thermal imaging unit. Using the Imager, you can obtain instant and accurate thermal images and radiometric readings from distant targets. The Imager is ergonomically designed for right-hand or left-hand use, and captures thermal images and data with a simple trigger press. The Imager can store up to 50 images that can be downloaded to your personal computer for storage, analysis, and report preparation.
        The InsideIR companion software application, lets you display, examine, and analyze your images and data to determine qualitative and quantitative trends associated with the target equipment. You can also use InsideIR to define maintenance databases based on your equipment conditions, monitoring, and asset management needs.
        The Imager provides high performance thermal imaging and is designed for industrial use. The Ti20:
        • Uses new detection technology to provide a clear thermal image with accurate temperature measurements up to 350 °C (662 °F).
        • Is protected against dust and moisture (IP54 rated) for use in harsh industrial environments.
        • Provides a minimum of 3 hours of continuous battery life.

        Development of software for monitoring temperature inside the MPD-TOF detector 10m

        The main task of the student will be to design the execution and software of the electronic system for measuring and monitoring the temperature of the detector elements based on platinum Pt100 thermoresistors.

As part of the implementation of the subject of engineering work, there should also be a PCB design that implements the multiplexer task, which will be used in measuring the temperature inside the MPD-TOF detector.

        Cosmic ray measurements - using those detectors in huge physical experiments as LHC or NICA. 30m

        Goal:
        Large detectors like ALICE in CERN are often equipped with additional cosmic ray detectors. These detectors are used to obtain information about which tracks inside the detector came from the passage of a particle coming from an atmospheric cascade (eg: muons), and are not as a product of an internal collision. They are also very useful for calibrating detectors such as TOF or TPC. The nature of radiation changes in relation to the direction in the sky which we observe as well as the influence of very thick walls or ground. The goal of this exercise is to self build a small cosmic ray detector and making real measurements using it, and analyzed received results.

        Description of the exercise:
        1. Discussion of the issue of wide atmospheric showers and cosmic irradiation.
        2. Construction of a small detector based on a scintillator and optical element SiPM type.

        Automatic, multipoint, high precision system for temperature measurement. 10m

        Goal:
        In the nuclear processes main interest is the level of energy production. One of the methods of determining this value is a multi-point, high precision measurement of temperature change. The goal of this project is to design a measuring system that solves the problem described. Then the manual preparation of the measuring device, make a software for it and to perform a real temperature measurements. We use temperature high precision sensors type Pt 100, and LUMEL measurement modules. The set should be programmed for online working with the computer control. We will use the LabView environment for it. The set will be useful for calibration other less precision systems.

        Description of the exercise:
        1. Discussion of the issue of ADS reactors and temperature measurement.
        2. Visiting of experimental site and the accelerators site.
        3. Construction of an electronic measuring system (based on ready-made components) based on high precision PT100 platinum sensors and the RS-485 protocol.
        4. Create Measuring system software (or upgrade of existing software) using the LabView environment.
        5. Calibration of the measuring system.
        6. Temperature measurements, normalization of results and their comparison with other results - practical analysis of the obtained results.
        7. Preparation the own speech at the end of the student practice and for the conference after that, and preparation the publication together with the practice supervisor based on the obtained results.

        Requirements for the students:
        The subject is addressed to students interested in electronics, practical measuring systems and nuclear physics.
        Basic knowledge of electronic layout.
        Basic skills in using Excel program and the LabView environment.

        Experimental measurement of the level of transmutation and neutron flux density in subcritical nuclear reactors ADS. 15m

        Goal:
        Nuclear reactors type III and III + dominate on the world, currently. Safety considerations, as well as the increasing requirements, are reason on intensive research on type IV reactors. An example of it, is the subcritical nuclear reactor controlled by a beam from the accelerator "ADS". The key issue in the design of such reactors is the knowledge of the neutron flux density values inside the reactor. Consider methods for determining the level of transmutation in subcritical reactors by using nuclear threshold reactions to determine the density of fast neutron fluxes. The goal will be to perform practical measurements using germanium detectors, calibration of results and their analysis.

        Description of the exercise:
        1. Discussion of the differences (advantage and disadvantage) of various types of nuclear reactors compared to subcritical accelerator-controlled reactors
        2. Participation in the experiment (if such will take place during the practice), and visiting of experimental site and the accelerators site.
        3. Measurements of the samples gamma spectrum on germanium detector and detector calibration procedure. Samples irradiated in time of the experiment.
        4. Analysis of obtained gamma spectra (Deimos program) and identification of isotopes.
        5. Determination of the isotope content in the samples.
        6. Normalization of results and their comparison with other results - practical analysis of the results obtained.
        7. Determination of neutron flux density with energy above 10 MeV.
        8. Preparation the own speech at the end of the student practice and for the conference after that, and preparation the publication together with the practice supervisor based on the obtained results.

        Requirements for the students:
        The topic is addressed to students interested in nuclear experimental physics using large research equipment and/or nuclear energetic.
        Basic knowledge of nuclear physics
        Basic skills in using Excel program.
