Abstract:

Annotated references 579 are presented on the effects of nuclear radiation on selected properties of a wide range of solid materials. The properties included are optical absorptance, reflectance, transmittance and emittance electrical resistivity and conductivity refractive index dielectric constant and strength magnetic permeability thermal conductivity and heat capacity. The references are grouped into 6 broad subject categories - General and Surface Studies Metals and Alloys Ceramics Plastics and Other Organic Materials Alkali halides and Azides. The references are arranged by property affected and type of radiation within each category. There is an index to specific materials, e.g., copper, polyethylene, etc. Some studies of x-rays are included. Several classes of solids are specifically excluded silicon and germanium, compound semiconductors and some other intermetallic compounds. Author
