    What I hope I have demonstrated by these many examples is that an accelerator health physicist can make contributions in many fields of science. He can, in addition to the various operational tasks that he is charged with, support others in his laboratory. He can do this by designing shielding for new accelerators and storage rings, by consulting with experimenters on background radiation problems... View full abstract»

    The Medical and Biophysical Sciences have often made use of technical developments in the Physical Sciences. High Energy Physics has made its contributions in recent years by bringing the use of scintillation and solid state detectors in trace element detection and in gamma imaging. More recently, the use of position sensitive detectors such as Multi-wire Proportional Chambers (MWPC) has been intr... View full abstract»

    In this lecture we have attempted to draw comparisons between electron and proton shielding problems. The health physicist, charged with shielding either type of accelerator, must ask himself, "Am I faced with a thick or thin shield problem?" For the electron accelerator, he may be able to remove the photon component with medium or high Z materials close to the source, leaving a thick shield probl... View full abstract»

  • Radiation Fields in Spacecraft

    The radiation environment to be found inside spacecraft, either in free space or earth-orbiting, is reviewed. The three main components of natural space radiation - galactic, solar, and trapped - are presented with a brief description of the important physical characteristics of each. The greatest known hazard to space travellers will come from rare large solar-particle events. View full abstract»

    First an outline of the principal methods of high energy physics to detect and to discriminate different particles within an unknown particle field is given. After that the instruments for Health Physics purposes are dealt with in some detail. Time-of-flight methods, spark chambers, Bonner spheres and activation detectors are reviewed with respect to particle energies of 1 to about 1000 MeV. View full abstract»

    The United States' astronauts have been exposed to a complex radiation environment that poses unique problems in high-energy radiation dosimetry. Since the astronauts were exposed to natural radiation sources with a potential for delivering very large radiation exposures, exposure limits in excess of occupational limits were adopted. These limits represent a balancing of the risk from injury due t... View full abstract»
