Ionizing radiation hazard seembol

Ionizin (or ionising) radiation is radiation componed o pairticles that individually carry enough kinetic energy tae liberate an electron frae an atom or molecule, ionizin it.[1] Ionizin radiation is generatit through nuclear reactions, either airtifeecial or naitural, bi very heich temperatur (e.g. plasma discharge or the corona o the Sun), via production o heich energy pairticles in pairticle accelerators, or due tae acceleration o charged pairticles bi the electromagnetic fields produced bi naitural processes, frae lichtnin tae supernova explosions.
