Active sensory systems are sensory receptors that are activated by probing the environment with self-generated energy.
In physics, attenuation or, in some contexts, extinction is the gradual loss of flux intensity through a medium.
Attenuation coefficient or narrow beam attenuation coefficient of the volume of a material characterizes how easily it can be penetrated by a beam of light, sound, particles, or other energy or matter.
The absorption of electromagnetic radiation by water depends on the state of the water.
The index of physics articles is split into multiple pages due to its size.
The mass attenuation coefficient, mass extinction coefficient, or mass narrow beam attenuation coefficient of the volume of a material characterizes how easily it can be penetrated by a beam of light, sound, particles, or other energy or matter.
In physics, the mean free path is the average distance traveled by a moving particle (such as an atom, a molecule, a photon) between successive impacts (collisions), which modify its direction or energy or other particle properties.
In physics, the radiation length is a characteristic of a material, related to the energy loss of high energy, electromagnetic-interacting particles with it.
Radiography is an imaging technique using X-rays to view the internal form of an object.
In passing through matter, charged particles ionize and thus lose energy in many steps, until their energy is (almost) zero.
Stopping and Range of Ions in Matter (SRIM) is a group of computer programs which calculate interaction of ions with matter; the core of SRIM is a program Transport of ions in matter (TRIM).
Stopping power in nuclear physics is defined as the retarding force acting on charged particles, typically alpha and beta particles, due to interaction with matter, resulting in loss of particle energy.
Thermopile laser sensors (Fig 1) are used for measuring laser power from a few µW to several W (see section 2.4).
X-rays make up X-radiation, a form of electromagnetic radiation.
