Radiation is energy that comes from a source and travels through some material or through space. Light and heat are types of radiation. The kind of radiation discussed on this site is called ionizing radiation because it has enough energy to remove an electron from an atom, making that atom an ion. In order to reach stability, these atoms give off, or emit, the excess energy or mass in the form of radiation. The two types of radiation are electromagnetic like light and particulate i.
Radioactive decay occurs when an unstable atomic nucleus loses energy by emitting energy in the form of emitted particles or electromagnetic waves, called radiation. Isotopes are atoms of the same element thereby having the same number of protons which differ in the number of neutrons in their nucleus. Some isotopes of a given element are more unstable than others, causing a nuclear reaction which releases energy to achieve a more stable nuclear configuration. There are many types of emmitted particles and radiation that radioisotopes produce when they decay. The types we will discuss here are: alpha, beta, and gamma listed in increasing ability to penetrate matter. Alpha decay is seen only in heavier elements greater than atomic number 52, tellurium.
Alpha-, Beta- and Gamma-Ray Spectroscopy
Vedantu academic counsellor will be calling you shortly for your Online Counselling session. Bookmark added to your notes. Radioactivity is essentially the nuclei decomposition process. It refers to the spontaneous decomposing of the unstable atomic nuclei to form nuclei with higher stability. This process or stability achievement is called radioactivity. The process leads to the emission of radiation - called energy and particles. There may be two types of radioactivity - radioactivity that is natural or induced.
Alpha-, Beta- and Gamma-Ray Spectroscopy Volume 1 offers a comprehensive account of radioactivity and related low-energy phenomena. It summarizes progress in the field of alpha-, beta- and gamma-ray spectroscopy, including the discovery of the non-conservation of parity, as well as new experimental methods that elucidate the processes of weak interactions in general and beta-decay in particular. Comprised of 14 chapters, the book presents experimental methods and theoretical discussions and calculations to maintain the link between experiment and theory. It begins with a discussion of the interaction of electrons and alpha particles with matter. The book explains the elastic scattering of electrons by atomic nuclei and the interaction between gamma-radiation and matter. It then introduces topic on beta-ray spectrometer theory and design and crystal diffraction spectroscopy of nuclear gamma rays.
Alpha particles , also called alpha rays or alpha radiation , consist of two protons and two neutrons bound together into a particle identical to a helium-4 nucleus. They are generally produced in the process of alpha decay , but may also be produced in other ways. Once the ion gains electrons from its environment, the alpha particle becomes a normal electrically neutral helium atom 4 2 He. Alpha particles have a net spin of zero.

Many nuclei are radioactive; that is, they decompose by emitting particles and in doing so, become a different nucleus. In our studies up to this point, atoms of one element were unable to change into different elements. All nuclei with 84 or more protons are radioactive, and elements with less than 84 protons have both stable and unstable isotopes. All of these elements can go through nuclear changes and turn into different elements.
