How high-dose testing can be used to simulate radiation exposure for the nuclear industry

simulate radiation exposure

Nuclear reactors and radioactive materials play an important part in our society, such as the use of radioisotopes for medical treatments and the production of carbon-free energy. But using radiation in a safe and beneficial manner requires a deep understanding of the materials involved and their potential reactions to radiation.

Shielding materials for medical isotopes and the materials used in nuclear reactors must withstand the continuous exposure of radiation – without performance failures. Read More »

How does crosslinking improve wire and cable insulation?

wire and cable insulationWhen wire and cable is irradiated by electron beam, the electrons crosslink the jacket, improving performance characteristics – such as higher tensile strength, chemical resistance, abrasion resistance, and improved thermal resistance at elevated temperatures – without changing the dimensional properties.

What are some different types of ionizing radiation?

different types of ionizing radiation

 

Radiation with wavelengths shorter than 10–10 m is considered ionizing radiation, because it can ionize the molecules it encounters. Gamma, x-ray, and e-beam are examples of ionizing radiation, whereas microwaves, radiowaves, and UV are considered nonionizing. Read More »
