  1. 1. Studies on the Gamma Radiation Environment in Sweden with Special Reference to 137Cs

    University dissertation from Göteborg

    Author : Sara Almgren; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2008]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; gamma radiation; caesium; 137Cs; deposition; migration; precipitation; in situ; CDE; NWF; Chernobyl; soil sampling; field measurements; dose measurements; dose rate; TLD; natural radiation; Kriging;

    Abstract : Gamma radiation in the environment today mainly originates from naturally occurring radionuclides, but anthropogenic radionuclides, such as 137Cs, contribute in some areas. In order to assess population exposure in case of fallout from nuclear weapons (NWF) or accidents, knowledge and monitoring of external gamma radiation and radionuclide concentrations in the environment is important.

  2. 2. Role of MTH1 and MYH proteins in genotoxic effects of radiation

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Molecular Biosciences, The Wenner-Gren Institute, Stockholm University

    Author : Sara Shakeri Manesh; Siamak Haghdoost; William F. Morgan; [2015]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MTH1; MYH; gamma radiation; UV radiation; oxidative stress; low dose rate ionizing radiation; molekylärgenetik; Molecular Genetics;

    Abstract : Humans are constantly exposed to different types of radiations. It has been suggested that low dose and low dose rate of γ-radiation as well as ultra violet A (UVA) induce oxidative stress in cells that may promote mutations. READ MORE

  3. 3. Radiation Hardness of 4H-SiC Devices and Circuits

    University dissertation from KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Sethu Saveda Suvanam; Anders Hallén; Carl-Mikael Zetterling; Ulrike Grossner; [2017]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Silicon carbide; radiation hardness; protons; gamma radiation; bipolar junction transistors; aluminium oxide; surface recombination.; Informations- och kommunikationsteknik; Information and Communication Technology;

    Abstract : Advances in space and nuclear technologies are limited by the capabilities of the conventional silicon (Si) electronics. Hence, there is a need to explore materials beyond Si with enhanced properties to operate in extreme environments. In this regards, silicon carbide (4H-SiC), a wide bandgap semiconductor, provides suitable solutions. READ MORE

  4. 4. Photospheric emission in gamma ray bursts Analysis and interpretation of observations made by the Fermi gamma ray space telescope

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Physics, Stockholm University

    Author : Shabnam Iyyani; Felix Ryde; David Burrows; [2015]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; gamma ray bursts; photosphere; radiation mechanism; Theoretical Physics; teoretisk fysik;

    Abstract : The large flashes of radiation that are observed in GRBs are generally believed to arise in a relativistic jetted outflow. This thesis addresses the question of how and where in the jet this radiation is produced. READ MORE

  5. 5. Radiation induced corrosion of copper

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Åsa Björkbacka; Mats Jonsson; Christofer Leygraf; Mehran Mostafavi; [2015]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Corrosion; oxidation; copper; copper oxide; gamma radiation; radiolysis; hydrogen peroxide; hydroxyl radical; Kemi; Chemistry;

    Abstract : The process of radiation induced corrosion of copper is not well understood. The most obvious situation where the knowledge of this process is crucial is in a deep repository for high level spent nuclear fuel where the fuel will be sealed inside copper canisters. READ MORE
