Publications From Experiments Involving RARAF

During the more than four decades that RARAF has been in operation, experiments have been performed for over 50 different research groups from more than 40 institutions including universities, national laboratories, cancer centers, and private corporations. These experiments, performed with particulate radiations such as protons, alpha particles and neutrons, have resulted in more than 200 publications in refereed journals, proceedings, and books. Research has been conducted in the fields of radiation biology, radiological physics, radiation chemistry, health physics, and medicine.
