Alpha particle print that page

The nomenclature is not well defined, and thus not all high-velocity helium nuclei are considered by all authors as alpha particles. As with beta and gamma rays/particles, the name used for the particle carries some mild connotations about its production process and energy, but these are

which will not ionize if it does not cause high temperatures). Conversely, even very low-intensity radiation will ionize at low temperatures and powers, if the individual particles carry enough energy (e.g., a low-power X-ray beam). In general, particles or photons with energies above a

Absorbed dose print that page

Note that the absorbed dose is not a good indicator of the likely biological effect. 1 Gy of alpha radiation would be much more biologically damaging than 1 Gy of photon radiation for example. Appropriate weighting factors can be applied reflecting the different relative biological effects

Radiation print that page

In physics , radiation is a process in which energetic particles or energy or waves travel through a medium or space. There are two distinct types of radiation ; ionizing and non-ionizing. The word radiation is commonly used in reference to ionizing radiation only (i.e., having sufficient

Neutron radiation print that page

Neutron radiation was discovered as a result of observing a beryllium nucleus reacting with an alpha particle thus transforming into a carbon nucleus and emitting a neutron , Be ( α , n ) C . The combination of an alpha particle emitter and an isotope with a large ( α , n ) nuclear

which can also be written as: 238 U   →   234 Th   +   α . An alpha particle is the same as a helium-4 nucleus , which has mass number 4 and atomic number 2. Alpha decay is by far the most common form of cluster decay where the parent atom ejects a defined daughter collection

Radiation hormesis print that page

National Academy of Medicine ) stated in their 2005 report concerning the effects of low-level radiation that many laboratory studies have observed radiation hormesis. [ 6 ] [ 7 ] However, they cautioned that it is not yet known if radiation hormesis occurs outside the laboratory, or in
