Virtual Nuclear Laboratory for Undergraduate Students

Abdulsamad Marghilani, Abdulkadir Aydarous and Sadek Zaghib

This study aims at creating an interactive online virtual nuclear and radiation laboratory for experiments conducted in the nuclear physics course. The work presents three web-based experiments: (1) Plotting a Geiger Plateau, (2) Inverse Square Law and (3) Absorption of gamma radiation. Each experiment has been designed and programmed in a way that simulates the real experiment performed in the physical lab. The Virtual Nuclear Laboratory (VNL) is based on results that have been achieved earlier in real-life experiments. The project is a compromise between two conflicting demands, reducing the cost of establishing and running nuclear and radiation lab and making them available to physics students and instructors. The VNL grants distance students the ability to interact with systems and boost their knowledge of course materials that would otherwise be impractical to implement in a real laboratory setting.
