Study - Atoms and Radiation
Our best links about studying atoms and radiation. Covering radioactivity, half life, ionisation, fusion and fission.
A good overview on the basics of radioactivity : the different types of radiation, sources, uses, dangers of radioactivity etc
Half life is the amount of time it takes for half of the atoms in a sample to decay. Find out more here.
A good website explaining ionizing radiation from the World Health Organisation
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
An introduction to ionising radiation and the measurement standards involved.
This is what The Internet Plasma Physics Education Experience (IPPEX) is all about! The following pages, are full of information on Fusion and Fusion Power, and will help you dive into the basic understanding of the Power of the Universe!
Nuclear fission explained simply.
