ENERGY RADIATION SYSTEMS
reading this section you will be able to do the following:
different ways that radiation can be generated.
As we mentioned before, there are
many different ways that radiation can be generated. We have looked
closely at two of the most widely utilized sources, radioisotopes
and x-ray generation. We will briefly introduce a few other means
of generating radiation. These methods are often referred to as
the high energy radiation systems.
Some of our greatest scientific developments
include high energy particle accelerators. Many of the natural
and artificial radioisotopes along with standard X-ray systems
are limited in terms of energy. Much of the scientific research
dedicated to subatomic nature would not be possible without particle

that generate radiation.
