RARAF Technical Tour


The Radiological Research Accelerator Facility (RARAF) provides the Center for Radiological Research and the radiation research community at large with advanced irradiation techniques using charged particle and neutron beams. During the more than four decades that RARAF, an NIH-funded Biomedical Technology Resource Center, 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.
