SUMMARY

Atoms, Radiation, and Radiation Protection offers professionals and advanced students a comprehensive coverage of the major concepts that underlie the origins and transport of ionizing radiation in matter. Understanding atomic structure and the physical mechanisms of radiation interactions is the foundation on which much of the current practice of radiological health protection is based. The work covers the origin, detection, and measurement of radiation and the statistical interpretation of the data. The procedures that are used to protect man and the environment from the potential harmful effects of radiation are thoroughly described. Basic principles are illustrated with an abundance of worked examples that exemplify practical applications. Chapters include problem sets (with partial answers) and extensive tables and graphs for continued use as a reference work. This expanded Third Edition includes thorough updates of the material, including the latest recommendations of the ICRP and NCRP. From the contents: 1. About Atomic Physics and Radiation. 2. Atomic Structure and Atomic Radiation. 3. The Nucleus and Nuclear Radiation. 4. Radioactive Decay. 5. Interaction of Heavy Charged Particles with Matter. 6. Interaction of Electrons with Matter. 7. Phenomena Associated with Charged-Particle Tracks. 8. Interaction of Photons with Matter. 9. Neutrons, Fission, and Criticality. 10. Methods of Radiation Detection. 11. Statistics. 12. Radiation Dosimetry. 13. Chemical and Biological Effects of Radiation. 14. Radiation-Protection Criteria and Exposure Limits. 15. External Radiation Protection. 16. Internal Dosimetry andRadiation Protection.Turner, James E. is the author of 'Atoms, Radiation, and Radiation Protection ', published 2007 under ISBN 9783527406067 and ISBN 3527406069.
