Ionizing radiation Current Affairs, GK & News
Lucrezia Terzi, a researcher at the Belgian Nuclear Research Centre (SCKCEN), has come up with a new way of predicting the monsoon at a science and technology conference organised in Vienna by the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty Organisation (CTBTO). The new method measures how much Beryllium-7 (an isotope of the element Beryllium) is present in the ..

The scientist at INMAS claim to have developed India’s first indigenous medical kit that may ensure protection from serious injuries and faster healing of wounds resulting from nuclear warfare or radioactive leakage. The medical kit has been developed for the armed, paramilitary and police forces only as they are the first ones likely to get ..

The Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) has rolled out Muntra, India’s first unmanned, remotely operated tank at its Chennai lab. It has been launched in three variants Muntra-S, Muntra-M and Muntra-N for surveillance, mine detection and reconnaissance in areas with nuclear and and biological threats. Muntra-S is the country’s first tracked unmanned ground vehicle (tank) developed for ..
Telcos say that they are not allowed to expand tower network due to emission issues. Emissions from mobile towers are considered safe as it is non-ionising or “low energy” radiation, which cannot alter the human DNA. At most, it can only induce thermal effects by way of mild arming of the body. Only ionising or ..

Specific absorption rate is the measure of the rate at which energy is absorbed by the body when exposed to a radio frequency (RF) in electromagnetic field. The term is not restricted to the absorption of Electromagnetic Feild (EMF) and can be used in terms of absorption of other forms of energy by tissue, including ultrasound. In short SAR is the power absorbed ..

The Government has instructed all cell phone manufacturers to include radiation tags in mobile handsets to display Specific Absorption Rate, SAR value by the first of September 2012. All the indigenous manufactures have been instructed to make necessary changes in the design, software and packaging in compliance with these instructions within the stipulated time. A ..
