The TMI-2 and Fukushima Daiichi accidents appear to be dissimilar because they involve different reactor types. However, the health physics related lessons learned from TMI-2 are applicable, and can enhance the Fukushima Daiichi recovery effort. © 2011 Elsevier Ltd. Source

The ALARA Principle ensures that the total effective dose equivalent is minimized subject to economic and social factors. Effective ALARA programs must include the participation of all facility workgroups, management support, teamwork, and strong leadership. The development and sustainability of effective ALARA programs require the establishment and monitoring of goals, rewarding the successful achievement of those goals, and incorporating lessons learned from tasks that fail to meet their goals. © 2010 Health Physics Society.

Uncertainties in the nuclear interaction for A≥800 superheavy nuclei preclude absolute theoretical predictions of nuclear properties including single-particle energies, half-lives, and Q-values. However, a bounding potential can be selected to predict trends in these properties and suggest islands of stability in A≥800 nuclei. © 2015 Physics Essays Publication. Source

The Standard Model of Particle Physics is reviewed with an emphasis on its relationship to the physics supporting the health physics profession. Concepts important to health physics are emphasized and specific applications are presented. The capability of the Standard Model to provide health physics relevant information is illustrated with application of conservation laws to neutron and muon decay and in the calculation of the neutron mean lifetime. © 2010 Health Physics Society.
