An introduction to ionising radiation and the measurement standards involved.
Radiation can interact with surrounding matter to produce positively and negatively charged particles (a type of electricity). This process is called ionisation, hence the term ionizing radiation.
Revision website about ionising radiation and the properties of alpha, beta and gamma
How does ionising radiation affect people, what risks arise from radiation exposure, and how can such risks be minimised? These question and more are addressed on this excellent site all about ...
A simple chart illustrating the ionising radiation dose a person can receive from various different sources.
Short article on why bananas give off relatively high amounts of ionising radiation.
When moving charges spiral in a magnetic field, they produce radiation as a result of their accelerations which is called synchrotron radiation.
Units of radiation, description of risk of radiation, comparing old and new units with good links to other relevant parts of the site.
Blackbody radiation refers to an object or system which absorbs all radiation incident upon it and re-radiates energy which is characteristic of this radiating system.
This fact sheet describes ionizing radiation, how it behaves and how it can affect human health. Three types of ionizing radiation are alpha particles, beta particles, and gamma rays.
