Ionizing radiation is radiation that carries enough energy to liberate electrons from atoms or molecules, thereby ionizing them. Ionizing radiation comprises subatomic particles, ions or atoms moving at relativistic speeds, and electromagnetic waves on the short wavelength end of the electromagnetic spectrum. Gamma rays, X-rays, and the upper vacuum ultraviolet part of the ultraviolet spectrum are ionizing, whereas the lower ultraviolet, visible light (including laser light), infrared, microwaves, and radio waves are considered non-ionizing radiation. Typical particles include alpha particles, beta particles and neutrons, as well as mesons that constitute cosmic rays. Ionizing radiation arises from a variety of sources, such as bombardment of the Earth by cosmic rays, the decay of radioactive materials, matter at extremely high temperatures (e.g. plasma discharge or the corona of the Sun), or acceleration of charged particles by electromagnetic fields (e.g. lightning or supernova explosions). Ionizing radiation can also be generated by the production of high energy particles in X-ray tubes and particle accelerators. Ionizing radiation is invisible and not directly detectable by human senses, so radiation detection instruments such as Geiger counters are required. However, in some cases ionizing radiation may lead to secondary emission of visible light upon interaction with matter, such as in Cherenkov radiation and radio luminescence. It is applied in a wide variety of fields such as medicine, research, manufacturing, construction, and many other areas, but presents a health hazard if proper measures against undesired exposure aren't followed. Exposure to ionizing radiation causes damage to living tissue, and can result in mutation, radiation sickness, cancer, and death.
