PULSED IRRADIATION TECHNIQUES (SINGLE-PULSED, MULTI-PULSED, ULTRA-PULSED) AS A NEW APPROACH TO RADIOBIOLOGICAL PROBLEMS
ARMY MEDICAL RESEARCH LAB FORT KNOX KY
Pagination or Media Count:
EXPERIMENTS AT DIFFERENT LABORATORIES, INCLUDING USAMRL, have demonstrated the existence of new effects in pulsed irradiation studies and have proven a previously made prediction by MichieAND Krohn on the lower efficiency of single high intensity pulses in comparison to conventional application of the same total dose in constant dose-variable radiation time experiments. The application of pulse techniques in radiation chemistry has led to detailed information on radical formation, chain reactions, and lifetime of the different intermediates. The available radiobiological information manifests the importance of pulse-techniques in the endeavor to get an insight into the basic mechanisms of the radiation-effect and to measure the lifetime of radiation produced free radicals and intermediates.
