- Springer 2011; US$ 159.00
The reader is provided with information about methods of calibration of light sources and photodetectors as well as responsiveness of spectral instruments ranging from near infrared to vacuum UV spectral, 1200 -- 100 nm, and radiation intensities of up to several quanta per second in absolute and arbitrary units. The author describes for the first... more...

Radiation processing is widely employed in plastics engineering to enhance the physical properties of polymers, such as chemical resistance, surface properties, mechanical and thermal properties, particle size reduction, melt properties, material compatibility, fire retardation, etc. Drobny introduces readers to the science of ionizing radiation... more...
- Elsevier Science 2012; US$ 72.95
The authors have addressed the basic need for internationally consistent standards and methods demanded by the new and increasing use of radioactive materials, radiopharmaceuticals and labelled compounds. Particular emphasis is given to the basic and practical problems that may be encountered in measuring radioactivity. The text provides information... more...

One essential characteristic of life is the exchange of matter and energy between organisms and their environment. Radiation is a form of energy that has always been around in nature and will forever be the companion of human beings throughout life. In order to assess the impact of radiation exposures properly, it is essential to introduce appropriate... more...

Exposure to radon gas, which is present in the environment naturally, constitutes over half the radiation dose received by the general public annually. At present, the most widely used method of measuring radon concentration levels throughout the world, both in dwellings and in the field, is by etched track detectors — also known as Solid State... more...

After World War II, the US Atomic Energy Commission (AEC) began mass-producing radioisotopes, sending out nearly 64,000 shipments of radioactive materials to scientists and physicians by 1955. Even as the atomic bomb became the focus of Cold War anxiety, radioisotopes represented the government’s efforts to harness the power of the atom for... more...

Kohle, Öl, Erdgas und Uran sind als Energiequellen zeitlich nur noch begrenzt verfügbar. Der technologische Entwicklungsstand für die zeitlich unbegrenzte Verfügbarkeit von Sonnenenergie und Windenergie erlaubt eine Energiewende. Sie durch Reizworte wie Klimakatastrophe oder Radioaktivität beschleunigen zu wollen, kann zu eigenständigen Gefahren und... more...
- Elsevier Science 2006; US$ 250.00
One of the aims of this book was to focus the attention of specialists to the diversity of the effects of the ionising radiation on biological and physical systems. Special emphasis has been placed on the exquisite complexities/differences introduced by high ionisation density versus low ionisation density irradiation in both biological and physical... more...
