MORE ABOUT THIS BOOK

Main description:

Applications of EPR in Radiation Research is a multi-author contributed volume presented in eight themes: I. Elementary radiation processes (in situ and low temperature radiolysis, quantum solids); II: Solid state radiation chemistry (crystalline, amorphous and heterogeneous systems); III: Biochemistry, biophysics and biology applications (radicals in biomaterials, spin trapping, free-radical-induced DNA damage); IV: Materials science (polymeric and electronic materials, materials for treatment of nuclear waste, irradiated food); V: Radiation metrology (EPR-dosimetry, retrospective and medical applications); VI: Geological dating; VII: Advanced techniques (PELDOR, ESE and ENDOR spectroscopy, matrix isolation); VIII: Theoretical tools (density-functional calculations, spectrum simulations).


Feature:

The first modern monograph to feature the applications of EPR to radiation research

Includes a chapter on fundamental radiation processes for those unfamiliar with this field

Applications to liquid-, solid-, bio-, polymer-, and semiconductor materials are presented in dedicated chapters

Recent developments in radiation metrology and geological dating are reviewed

The use of advanced experimental and theoretical tools is presented by recognized leaders in this field
