RADIOACTIVITY – RADIONUCLIDES
– RADIATION is suitable for a general audience interested in topical environmental
and human health radiological issues such as radiation exposure in aircraft, food
sterilisation, nuclear medicine, radon gas, radiation dispersion devices ("dirty
bombs")… It leads the interested reader through the three Rs of nuclear science,
to the forefront of research and developments in the field. The book is also suitable
for students and professionals in the related disciplines of nuclear and radiochemistry,
health physics, environmental sciences, nuclear and astrophysics. Recent developments
in the areas of exotic decay modes (bound beta decay of ‘bare' or fully ionized
nuclei), laser transmutation, nuclear forensics, radiation hormesis and the LNT
hypothesis are covered. Atomic mass data for over 3000 nuclides from the most recent
(2003) evaluation are included. The book contains a CD-ROM with the Universal Nuclide
Chart – an interactive, platform independent JAVA-program for displaying basic nuclear
data, decay processes and neutron reactions together with a fold-out version of
the most recent Karlsruhe Chart of the Nuclides.
Students in the fields of nuclear and radio-chemistry, nuclear medicine, health
physics, environmental sciences, nuclear and astrophysics
