It is observed that Mg[Al.sub.2][O.sub.4]: [Dy.sup.3+] phosphor possesses high sensitivity to enable measurements of very low radiation doses, linear response to increasing gamma-ray dose, and very low fading.
On the other hand, higher antenna gain can be easily achieved through CPW-fed antennas due to the fact that it gets low radiation leakages [6].
"Those of us fortunate enough to live in the developed world fret too much about minor hazards of everyday life: improbable air crashes, carcinogens in food, low radiation doses, and so forth," he said.
The NRPA reports the releases of the Norsk Gjenvinning Group have very low radiation levels and are not expected to have any significant effects on marine life in the fjord.
"All patients treated via X-ray guided interventions benefit from the advantage of low radiation exposure, but it is especially important when you are treating patients who have to undergo lengthy and complex procedures," said Dr.
On the other hand, the proposed antenna can simultaneously achieve high gain with a very low radiation in back lobe and side lobes directions.
So the plane perpendicular to the current direction has relatively low radiation. Meanwhile, the side-lobe level in E-plane is relatively high.
Mr Clark said that even with 100% green leaf area, plants cannot compensate for low radiation levels.
A study of 120,000 survivors of the atomic bombings in Japan found that even survivors who received low radiation doses (10mSv) had a significantly increased risk of developing cancer)
early detection and diagnosis of breast cancer, Diederik Zeven, general manager of Philips Healthcare Middle East, said, "Our MicroDose Mammography system ensures that mammogram will be quick and at a low radiation dose.
It achieves maximum detection accuracy with an unequalled low radiation exposure with its unique, pulsed X-ray technology.
"The FSA needs to convey the fact that the updated risk assessment, together with very low radiation levels, means that the current controls put in place immediately after the Chernobyl radiation fallout in 1986 are no longer proportionate to this very low risk and are ineffective in further reducing the already low doses.
