Covering state-of-the-art advances, novel applications, and future perspectives, this volume presents new directions on the basic studies of charged particle and photon interactions with matter and their applications. It discusses the latest theoretical and experimental studies on the physical, physicochemical, chemical, and biological stages of the interactions. It also explores a host of application areas, including health physics, cancer therapy, nanopolymers, space science, environmental conservation, biotechnology, nuclear engineering, and more. The book avoids using jargon and special technical terms and includes an extensive set of references at the end of each chapter.
