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...
- 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...
- 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...

This volume gives an up-to-date account of the methods used in the detection of artificial radionuclides and their spread in the environment. more...
- Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development 2004; US$ 109.00
Establishing reliable computational methods and tools for radiation dosimetry is of great importance today because of the increased use of radiation in a number of areas of science, technology and medical applications. Fields concerned include radiation protection, radiation shielding, radiation diagnostics and therapy, radiobiology, biophysics and... more...
- CRC Press 2009; US$ 199.95
While applications rapidly change one to the next in our commercialized world, fundamental principles behind those applications remain constant. So if one understands those principles well enough and has ample experience in applying them, he or she will be able to develop a capacity for reaching results via conceptual thinking rather than having... more...
- CRC Press 2000; US$ 139.95
Radiation dosimetry has made great progress in the last decade, mainly because radiation therapy is much more widely used. Since the first edition, many new developments have been made in the basic methods for dosimetry, i.e. ionization chambers, TLD, chemical dosimeters, and photographic films. Radiation Dosimetry: Instrumentation and Methods, Second... more...
