Goals

This lecture introduces the basic concepts of radiation-matter interactions : different modes of interaction of charged particules with matter (electron, positron, alpha, proton, ions) as well as the interactions of neutral radiations (photons and neutrons) with matter. The bases of radio-protection are also presented, with a description of particle interactions in biological matter and the standard radioprotection units.
