Sammanfattning : Electronic components, based on current semiconductor technologies and operating in radiation rich environments, suffer degradation of their performance as a result of radiation exposure. Silicon carbide (SiC) provides an alternate solution as a radiation hard material, because of its wide bandgap and higher atomic displacement energies, for devices intended for radiation environment applications.

2. Low-Dose Ionizing Radiation Induces Neurotoxicity in the Neonate : Acute or fractionated doses and interaction with xenobiotics in mice
Sammanfattning : This thesis examines the developmental neurotoxic effects of exposure to low-dose ionizing radiation (IR), alone or together with xenobiotics, during a critical period of neonatal brain development in mice.During mammalian brain development there is a period called the brain growth spurt (BGS), which involves extensive growth and maturation of the brain.

Sammanfattning : Aims. The aims of this study were to establish a cohort of persons treated with radiotherapy for skin haemangioma in childhood and study the excess risk of cancer after exposure to ionizing radiation. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Mixed beams of ionizing radiation in our environment originate from space, the bedrock and our own houses. Radiotherapy patients treated with boron neutron capture therapy or with high energy photons are also exposed to mixed beams of gamma radiation and neutrons. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : DNA is the critical target when cells are exposed to ionizing radiation, a potent stressor with capacity to produce complex DNA damages, thereby increasing the risk of cancer. DNA and associated histones form chromatin, which is an effective protection against ionizing radiation. LÄS MER
