A regional training course on "the Use of IBA Techniques to Analyze Atmospheric Aerosols" is scheduled to kick-off next Sunday at the University of Jordan (UJ) Faculty of Science.
The training course is held within the framework of the Regional TC Project RAS/0/076 "Investigating Atmospheric Particulate Metter and Pollution Source Contributions in Urban Environments Using Nuclear Analytical Techniques (ARASIA)".
The Five-day course, organized by the Department of Physics with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), will take place at the van de Graaff accelerator (JUVAC).
The purpose of the course  is to provide theoretical knowledge and build experimental capacity and skills in the utilization of different Ion Beam Analysis techniques such as the particle induced X-ray emission (PIXE) and Rutherford backscattering spectrometry (RBS) for the Elemental compositional analysis of air particulate matter (APM) samples.
According to Prof. Hanan Saadeh, the course coordinator, the 40-hour training will be delivered by experts from UJ, Italy, France, and Lebanon, and will involve trainees from Jordan, Lebanon, Syria, Iraq, Kuwait, Qatar, Yemen and Oman.
It is worth mentioning that the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has donated a number of equipment and research tools for the benefit of the Atomic physics laboratory at the University due to its role in the success of the project. The equipment will be utilized in the training course as well.
