5.1.2 Properties and characteristics of radiations

Takahashi, Fumiaki  

The Atomic Energy Society of Japan has planned to publish a document for public, entitled "Current and tomorrow of atomic energy, -Experiences from the accident at the Tokyo Electronic Power Company Fukushima Dai-ichi NPPs-". The documents give us basics and usages of radiations, in addition to nuclear power plants and the accident at TEPCO Fukushima Dai-ichi NPPs. This manuscript explains interactions and penetrations in material for $$alpha$$-rays, $$beta$$-rays, $$gamma$$-rays and neutrons. In addition, exposure characteristics that is determined by properties of radiations are expressed here. This manuscript also explains characteristics in internal exposure and countermeasures of radiation protection following the TEPCO accident for Iodine-131 and Cesium-137.
