Record Type: concept
gamma radiation (electromagnetic radiation, radiation (energy), ... Associated Concepts (hierarchy name))

 

Note: Highly energetic electromagnetic radiation with a very short wavelength emitted during radioactive decay. Gamma rays are essentially very short x-rays and penetrate matter deeply. Gamma radiation is used in radiography and as an exterminant and sterilizing agent, which kills insects, molds, bacteria, or fungi.
