Interaction of Nuclear Radiations with matter

In the previous chapter we have discussed natural radioactivity in which a and B particles and y-rays are emitted from the disintegrating nucleus of an atom. In nuclear fission and fusion reactions neutrons and other particles together with certain radiations are emitted from the nucleus. Moreover interaction of high energy particles *natural or artificial* with matter produce certain nuclear or atomic reactions with the emission of particles like protons,Deuteronomy,neutrons and ionizing radiations Read more [...]
