Physics of Nuclear Radiations: Concepts, Techniques and Applications.
Physics of Nuclear Radiations: Concepts, Techniques and Applications
Rangacharyulu presents a textbook for a course introducing a physics perspective on nuclear radiation. It requires no more than a first-year college background in physics and mathematics. The goal is not to make students pro-nuclear or anti-nuclear, but to provide them tools to calculate and asses nuclear radiation and its impact. The topics include physics preliminaries, the interaction of heavy charged particles with matter, interactions of neutrons with matter, basics of radiation dosimetry, and nuclear radiation detectors. A final chapter surveys a few applications of nuclear radiation.
