Item description for Radioactivity Radionuclides Radiation by Joseph Magill...

RADIOACTIVITY -- RADIONUCLIDES -- RADIATION is suitable for a general audience interested in topical environmental and human health radiological issues such as radiation exposure in aircraft, food sterilisation, nuclear medicine, radon gas, radiation dispersion devices ("dirty bombs")... It leads the interested reader through the three Rs of nuclear science, to the forefront of research and developments in the field. The book is also suitable for students and professionals in the related disciplines of nuclear and radiochemistry, health physics, environmental sciences, nuclear and astrophysics. Recent developments in the areas of exotic decay modes (bound beta decay of 'bare' or fully ionized nuclei), laser transmutation, nuclear forensics, radiation hormesis and the LNT hypothesis are covered.

Atomic mass data for over 3000 nuclides from the most recent (2003) evaluation are included. The book contains a CD-ROM with the Universal Nuclide Chart -- an interactive, platform independent JAVA-program for displaying basic nuclear data, decay processes and neutron reactions together with a fold-out version of the most recent Karlsruhe Chart of the Nuclides.

More About Joseph Magill

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Dr. Joseph Magill is author of over 150 scientific papers and 20 patents and editor of the Institute Annual Reports. His most recent publication is a book on radionuclides: J. Magill, An Integrated Environment for Computations on Radionuclide and their Radiation, Springer Verlag, Heidelberg, 2003. (see for more details). Based on the above book, two-day nuclear education and training courses on Radioactivity, Radionuclides, and Radiation are organised and run by the author at regular intervals during the year. Since 1977, he has held a position as theoretical physicist with the Commission of the European Communities, Institute for Transuranium Elements, Karlsruhe, Germany. He is currently responsible for advanced nuclear fuel cycles. Dr. Magill is a member of the Technical Working group on ADS under the chairmanship of Prof. C. Rubbia and is one of the authors of the report: "A European Roadmap for Accelerator Driven Systems for Nuclear Waste Transmutation." He is currently the Commission representative in the TRADE (Triga Accelerator Driven Experiment) project and consultant to the IAEA in Vienna on Partitioning and Transmutation of Nuclear Waste. Recently, Dr. Magill has been involved in an international effort in so-called laser transmutations studies. These studies, which involve the giant pulse laser VULCAN (Rutherford Appleton Lab) and the high repetition rate Tabletop laser (Jena university), have led to the demonstration of laser induced fission in uranium and thorium for the first time. In the most recent experiments, Iodine-129 has been transmuted. These experiments have also potential medical applications. He is currently investigating howthis technology can be scaled for industrial scale nuclear waste transmutation.

Dr. Jean Galy, after his education in Physics and Neutron Physics in Marseille, France, made his PhD studies in Sweden, on the measurement of the fission products of 233U in a fast neutron flux. After a short stay at the CEA Cadarache, he joined the European Commission-Joint Research Centre at the Institute for Transuranium Elements, Kalrsruhe, Germany. Since 2000, he is there working as scientific officer on high intensity laser induced nuclear reaction studies and developing the nuclear data and calculation internet based software. He has published about 10 scientific reviewed articles and more than 30 conference proceeding and peer reviewed reports.

Joseph Magill was born in 1950.

Reviews - What do customers think about Radioactivity Radionuclides Radiation?

Excellent textbook  Aug 16, 2007
This is the best, most up to date book on the subject that I know of.

Magill has done such a good job with "R cubed" as some people call it, that it is a suggested introductory text and is offered for sale in the book stores of several well respected international research organizations.

One of the biggest challenges in science is to keep up with the flood of information. Magill's book is the most current available.
