Greetings from Lookout Mountain Alabama

Post by Tishers » 08 Aug 2017, 06:56

Hello from the mountains of northeast Alabama,

My name is Tisha and I am an amateur scientist. Amateur in the sense that I do not get paid for the physics side of things but I am an electrical engineer with specializations in communications and instrumentation systems. Primarily I work on power generation and transmission systems but have also done work at nuclear power facilities.

My interests are in gamma spectroscopy and element identification, sometimes doing neutron activation for non-radioactive substances. This is primarily for geology sample identification.

I also have a home-made cosmic ray "telescope" with two detectors in coincidence mode through a collimator. It is not very telescopic but it is directional.

Back in school (in the 1980's) I had done internships at a few US national labs in the accelerator physics department and in the analysis of nuclear fuel burn-up.
