S.E. International, Inc. Radiation Basics Slide Show ©

Since our instruments are sometimes purchased by individuals with no background in radiation protection, we thought it would be helpful to include this information. The following information is based on features that are available with most of our Radiation Alert® meters.

This presentation will cover some of the basics. This is for Ionizing Radiation, such as alpha, beta, gamma, and x-rays. It does not cover NON-ionizing radiation, such as microwaves, radio waves, and cellphones.
