  • Radioaktivität ? von der Entdeckung bis Fukushimaby Helmut Abel; Gedrun Erzgräber

    Trafo Verlagsgruppe 2013; US$ 10.51

    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...

  • Physics and Engineering of Radiation Detectionby Syed Naeem Ahmed

    Elsevier Science 2007; US$ 116.00

    This book presents an overview of the physics of radiation detection and its applications. It covers the origins and properties of different kinds of ionizing radiation, their detection and measurement, and the procedures used to protect people and the environment from their potentially harmful effects. It details the experimental techniques and instrumentation... more...

  • Advanced Materials and Techniques for Radiation Dosimetryby Khalil Arshak

    Artech House 2006; US$ 139.00

    Publisher's com The threat of nuclear ''dirty'' bombs, a growing shift to nuclear energy, and new medical therapies using radiation are just some of the current developments bringing new importance to dosimetry ? the detection and measurement of radiation. This comprehensive volume is indispensable to engineers and scientists working in dosimetry to... more...

    Wiley 2008; US$ 295.00

    A straightforward presentation of the broad concepts underlying radiological physics and radiation dosimetry for the graduate-level student. Covers photon and neutron attenuation, radiation and charged particle equilibrium, interactions of photons and charged particles with matter, radiotherapy dosimetry, as well as photographic, calorimetric, chemical,... more...

  • New Techniques for the Detection of Nuclear and Radioactive Agentsby Gul Asiye Aycik

    Springer 2009; US$ 219.00

    Comprises the selected presentations of NATO Advanced Training Course held 26-30 May 2008 in Mugla, Turkey. This book presents environmental data from many locations of different countries and also contains the contributions in the detection/monitoring programs of some authors from CIS countries. more...

  • Optically Stimulated Luminescence Dosimetryby L. Boetter-Jensen; S.W.S. McKeever; A.G. Wintle

    Elsevier Science 2003; US$ 250.00

    Optically Stimulated Luminescence (OSL) has become the technique of choice for many areas of radiation dosimetry. The technique is finding widespread application in a variety of radiation dosimetry fields, including personal monitoring, environmental monitoring, retrospective dosimetry (including geological dating and accident dosimetry), space dosimetry,... more...

  • Life Atomicby Angela N. H. Creager

    University of Chicago Press 2013; US$ 45.00

    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...

  • Ionizing Radiation and Polymersby Jiri George Drobny

    Elsevier Science 2012; US$ 159.00

    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...

  • Radon Measurements by Etched Track Detectorsby S.A. Durrani; Radomir Ilic

    World Scientific Publishing Company 1997; US$ 132.00

    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...

  • Microdosimetric Response of Physical and Biological Systems to Low- and High-LET Radiationsby Yigal Horowitz

    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...
