Nuclear science is truly a product of the 20th century. This
module will discuss several nuclear science topics at a basic level
appropriate for the radiological worker. These concepts are
necessary for the worker to understand the nature of radiation and
its potential effect on health. The topics covered include basic
particles of the atom, types of radiation, and the definition of units
used to measure radiation.
This module introduces the worker to basic radiological
fundamentals and terms that are common in the DOE complex.
After learning the fundamentals of radiation, radioactive material,
and radioactive contamination, the worker will build from the
basic to the more in-depth concepts presented in the other
