Gamma RadiationFeriz AdrovicOnline
| 332 Pages
This book brings new research insights on
the properties and behavior of gamma radiation, studies from a wide range of
options of gamma radiation applications in Nuclear Physics, industrial
processes, Environmental Science, Radiation Biology, Radiation Chemistry,
Agriculture and Forestry, sterilization, food industry, as well as the review of
both advantages and problems that are present in these applications. Because of
the global importance of gamma radiation, the content of this book will be
interesting for the wider audience as well.
