    A radionuclide (radioactive nuclide, radioisotope or radioactive isotope) is an atom that has excess nuclear energy, making it unstable. This excess energy can be used in one of three ways: emitted from the nucleus as gamma radiation; transferred to one of its electrons to release it as a conversion electron; or used to create and emit a new particle (alpha particle or beta particle) from the.   Marie Curie, whom Google is celebrating Monday with a Google Doodle in honor of her th birthday, lived her life awash in ionizing radiation. More than a century later, her papers are still.

The Safe Transport of Radioactive Materials is a handbook that details the safety guidelines in transporting radioactive materials. The title covers the various regulations and policies, along with the safety measures and procedures of radioactive material transport.

This Handbook provides guidance on the design, testing, certification, and operation of packages for these materials. As part of its required activities inthe US Department of Energy (DOE) made overshipments. Of these shipments, approximately 4% were hazardous, and of these, slightly over 1% (over 6, shipments) were by: 2.

Radioactive materials are among the many kinds of hazardous substances emergency responders might have to deal with in a transportation accident. Because strict packaging requirements are used in the shipment of radioactive materials, accidental spills or releases of these substances seldom occur.

Handbook of Radioactivity Analysis: Radiation Physics and Detectors, Volume One, and Radioanalytical Applications, Volume Two, Fourth Edition, constitute an authoritative reference on the principles, practical techniques and procedures for the accurate measurement of radioactivity - everything from the very low levels encountered in the environment, to higher levels measured in radioisotope.

Member States of the IAEA will use this publication as a guide in the accounting for nuclear material with the aim of improving the effectiveness of SSACs at the State and facility level, which is also an essential component in maintaining the security of nuclear material and combating illicit trafficking.
