A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

Although many individual efforts were directed to radiation protection problems from the outset, it was not until about two decades after the discovery of X-rays and radiations from radioactive materials that the first organized or group efforts developed. This work deals primarily with the group efforts, while also touching on many of the individual contributions. Author/editor Lauriston S. Taylor (1902 - 2004) was an American physicist known for his work in the field of radiation protection and measurement. He established standards for X-ray radiation exposure for the first time in the 1920s, which eventually led to a group of government organizations that set the standards over the next 50 years. Taylor remained active in debates about radiation exposure into his 80s, often advocating the viewpoint that small doses of radiation were not important. This volume includes Taylor's personal records of the proceedings of the International Commission on Radiological Protection (ICRP), the International Commission on Radiation Units and Measurement (ICRU), the National Council on Radiation Protection and Measurements (NCRP) and other bodies formed prior to 1950 and in some cases these notes are the only extant records of these groups. Taylor served as president of the Health Physics Society (HPS) from 1958 to 1959. He was a recipient of the Medal of Freedom, and the Presidential Bronze Star (then the highest military award that could be given to a civilian).
