BIOPHYSICAL STUDIES OF RELATIONS BETWEEN RADIATION DOSE, QUALITY AND BIOLOGICAL EFFECT

Objective

THIS PROPOSAL WILL PROVIDE MORE INFORMATION ON DOSIMETRY FOR THE PROTECTION OF WORKERS AND THE POPULATION. IMPROVEMENT OF THE INTERPRETATION OF DOSE-EFFECT RELATIONSHIP BY MICRODOSIMETRIC STUDIES.
Work is concerned with the analysis of the physical properties of diverse radiations in relation to their observed biological effectiveness, and the development of radiation sources and dosimetric techniques for radiobiological studies at low and high dose rates.
1. ANALYSIS OF PHYSICAL PROPERTIES OF DIVERSE RADIATIONS IN RELATION TO THEIR OBSERVED BIOLOGICAL EFFECTIVENESS.
2. DEVELOPMENT OF RADIATION SOURCES AND DOSIMETRIC TECHNIQUES FOR RADIOBIOLOGICAL STUDIES AT LOW AND HIGH DOSE-RATE.
