Radiation Physics and Chemistry
Radiat Phys Chem
Radiation Physics and Chemistry is a multidisciplinary journal that provides a medium for publication of substantial and original papers, reviews, and technical notes which focus on research and developments in radiation physics, radiation chemistry and radiation processing. A fuller though not exhaustive list of topics would include: Radiation Physics Fundamental processes in radiation physics Interaction mechanisms for example scattering and absorption of photon and particle radiations, attenuation coefficients, x-ray fluorescence, Cherenkov effect, polarization, effects of periodic structures (Bragg diffraction, channelling, parametric x-radiation, etc), mathematical methods in radiation physics, reference data. Radiation sources and detectors For example accelerator and radionuclide spectra and other properties, radiation fields from point and extended sources, detector response functions, basic physics of dosimetry, radiation transport, buildup factors. Applications of radiation physics in fundamental research For example, x-ray, -ray and neutrino astronomy and astrophysics, fusion plasma diagnostics, polycapillary x-ray and neutron optics. Radiation Chemistry Ionic and radical species and their measurement Resultant chemical reactions Kinetics and reaction constants Reactivity transfer Effect of state and dose rate Spectrophotometry, EPR, conductivity, pulse radiolysis and other analytical methods Effect of concentration and additives Chain reactions Macromolecular systems Computation models Radiation Processing Radiation Sterilization Microbiology, toxicology, biocompatibility, validation. Food irradiation Microbiological quality, chemical effects, nutrition, detection, induced radioactivity. Polymers Synthesis, polymerization, curing, grafting, crosslinking, degradation, composites. Environmental Effluent gas, waste water, water purification, toxin reduction, sludge, recycling of wastes. Radiation effects Semiconductors, gemstones, crystals, ceramics Dosimetry and process control Dosimeter systems, analytical intrumentation, traceability, environmental influence, measurement uncertainty. Radiation sources and facilities Accelerators, gamma sources (60Co.137Cs) X-ray, safety, shielding.
