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.
In physics, the attenuation length or absorption length is the distance \lambda into a material when the probability has dropped to 1/e that a particle has not been absorbed.
Bremsstrahlung, from bremsen "to brake" and Strahlung "radiation"; i.e., "braking radiation" or "deceleration radiation", is electromagnetic radiation produced by the deceleration of a charged particle when deflected by another charged particle, typically an electron by an atomic nucleus.
The Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) experiment is one of two large general-purpose particle physics detectors built on the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN in Switzerland and France.
Gadolinium oxyorthosilicate (known as GSO) is a type of scintillating inorganic crystal used for imaging in nuclear medicine and for calorimetry in particle physics.
The index of physics articles is split into multiple pages due to its size.
* absorbed dose.
Kevlar is a heat-resistant and strong synthetic fiber, related to other aramids such as Nomex and Technora.
Krypton (from translit "the hidden one") is a chemical element with symbol Kr and atomic number 36.
Lutetium-yttrium oxyorthosilicate, also known as LYSO, is an inorganic chemical compound with main use as a scintillator crystal.
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.
The Molière radius is a characteristic constant of a material giving the scale of the transverse dimension of the fully contained electromagnetic showers initiated by an incident high energy electron or photon.
Nuclear collision length is the mean free path of a particle before undergoing a nuclear reaction, for a given particle in a given medium.
Nuclear interaction length is the mean path length required to reduce the numbers of relativistic charged particles by the factor 1/, or 0.368, as they pass through matter.
In particle physics, a shower is a cascade of secondary particles produced as the result of a high-energy particle interacting with dense matter.
The polarized targets are used as fixed targets in scattering experiments.
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.
Stolzite is a mineral, a lead tungstate; with the formula PbWO4.
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.
