You have three kinds of immediate radiation, alpha, beta and gamma radiation.
Their penetrating power differs as well.
Most of the radioactive particles from that disaster are sufficiently well handled with barriers, protective clothes, respirators. Most important here thar humans do not ingest them via air, food or fluids.
But once they are inside the ...
After looking (without result!) at loads of pages returned from a Bing search for BNCT, I hit upon searching for:
The first reference I looked at was:
Use of TEPCs for characterising BNCT Beams
but there is no reference to the manufacturer.
However, the opening chapter of:
Chemical aspects on the final disposal of irradiated
The WHO put out a statement in February 2013 addressing the health risks. Certain groups of people got fairly high doses of radiation:
Apart from emergency workers, the most affected people were those who
remained in some highly contaminated towns and villages to the
northwest of the power station for up to four months before
There are three main models for the effects of low-dose radiation. The mainstream model, and the most conservative of the three, is the linear no-threshold model. It assumes that high-dose effects can be linearly extrapolated clear down to zero (that is, zero dose has zero effect, any non-zero dose carries a non-zero level of risk).
The most ...
