  • Maximum protection from new personal radiation detector and alarm

    New from Southern Scientific is DoseRAE 2, a compact, direct-reading, electronic personal radiation detector with alarm that accurately accumulates real-time dose data that allows immediate reaction in case of radiation occurrences and thus can reduce radiation exposure. DoseRAE 2, which is an ideal personal dosimeter for anyone likely to be exposed to radiation hazard, uses a compensated PIN ...

  • ASTM F1467 - 11 Standard guide for use of an X-ray tester

    Significance and Use Electronic circuits used in many space, military and nuclear power systems may be exposed to various levels of ionizing radiation dose. It is essential for the design and fabrication of such circuits that test methods be available that can determine the vulnerability or hardness (measure of nonvulnerability) of components to be used in such systems. ...

  • ASTM F1190 - 11 standard guide for neutron irradiation of unbiased electronic components

    Semiconductor devices can be permanently damaged by reactor spectrum neutrons (1, 2) . The effect of such damage on the performance of an electronic component can be determined by measuring the component’s electrical characteristics before and after exposure to fast neutrons in the neutron fluence range of interest. The resulting data can be ...

  • Understanding Tungsten Radiation Shielding

    Before we start discussing tungsten radiation shield, it is necessary to know what the radiation is and how does it affect our life. Radiation simply means emission of particular type of rays from an object. Radiation from different devices has different effect on human body. For example, you are not going to have any problem with ...


  • ASTM E2304 - 03(2011) standard practice for use of a LiF photo-fluorescent film dosimetry system

    A lithium fluoride (LiF)-based photo-fluorescent film dosimetry system provides a means of determining absorbed dose to materials by the photo-stimulated emission of wavelengths longer than that of the stimulation wavelength. The absorbed dose is obtained from the amount of the light emission. Imperfections ...
