IR symbol Ionising radiation, is radiation that produces ionisation in matter, examples include cosmic radiation, alpha particles, gamma rays and X-rays. When these radiations pass through the tissues of the body they have sufficient energy to damage DNA. By following the University's arrangements and procedures when working with ionising radiation will ensure you keep both safe and within the law.
