Radiation Safety

Radiation is the process of emitting energy in the form of waves and particles. Radiation occurs when the particles of an atom undergo a change in position, or energy. Matter that contains unstable atoms that frequently undergo such changes are said to be radioactive. If you will be using radioactive material in your lab, please contact GW's Radiation Safety Officer.
