This course is an introduction to theory, calculation, and application of radiation shielding and its associated external radiation dosimetry. The course begins with a review of fundamental radiological terms, nuclear structure, and decay mechanisms leading to the study of interactions of ionizing radiations and matter. The focus of the course will be on beta, gamma, and neutron radiations. Each will be examined on the basis of the mechanisms by which they deliver dose to matter, the means by which such exposures can be minimized or precluded, including the part that exposure geometry, radiation energy, and quantity of activity play in the final determination of dose.
