Radiation is all around us. It is energy travelling through space. Heat, light and sound are familiar to our senses, ultra-violet waves gives us sunburn, and radio waves require some instruments to discern them. As well as these there are several forms of ionising radiation, which also require instruments to discern and measure their intensity.

In this fact sheet, the types of radiation and measures necessary to record and protect from radiation are briefly explained.
