How Radiation in Smoke Detectors Keeps You Alive

How Radiation in Smoke Detectors Keeps You Alive | Nuclear Physics | Scoop.it
Radiation so often gets a bad rap. Obviously, no one wants to swallow a chunk of uranium, but some radiation isn't just harmless, it can keep you alive.

Mikko Hakala's curator insight, July 11, 2:01 AM

 

European Synchrotron Radiation Facility (ESRF) is a most powerful X-ray machine in Europe, supported and shared by 20 countries. See http://www.esrf.eu/ ;

 

ESRF is going through a major upgrade. This BBC article by @BBCAmos (via @tmertzi) tells some essential information what this means to ESRF. See how much more radiation will be obtained, how much will the upgrade cost and the timetables.

 

How synchrotron X-rays are generated and how research is done with them? Here is one recent video from a canadian synchrotron explaining basic operation:

(via @CanLightSource, @lightsources)
