Beta Spectroscopy

Beta-spectroscopy introduces the student into the field of special relativity and weak interactions of radioactive decays

After radioactivity discovery, E. Rutherford separated radioactive emissions into two types: alpha (α) and beta (β) radiations, based on matter penetration and ability to cause ionization. The β particles have higher penetration and lower specific ionization than alpha particles. Beta particles are electrons (β) or positrons (β+), resulting by nucleon decays in unstable nuclei. Since beta decay is a three body process, the β energy spectrum is continuum.
The β spectroscopy experiments are performed using the Educational Beta KIT, described below.
