He received his MSc degree in 1999 and his PhD degree from Cairo University in 2003 for the study on the calibration and cauterization of organic material for use in radiation dosimetry using electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR). In 1999, he worked as a guest researcher in the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) in Maryland, USA, and as a visiting scientist in Dartmouth College (EPR center of viable system) in New Hampshire, USA, in 2008. Also he has worked as a guest researcher in The Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt (PTB), Germany’s national metrology institute, in 2006. He has led and participated in several international research projects on radiation measurements. His research interest is the ionizing radiation metrology, especially ionization chambers, EPR, and thermoluminescence dosimetry (TLD). He is a reviewer for several peer-reviewed journals and has supervised a number of master and PhD theses.

Gamma radiation has been discovered since more than a century and contributed in many achievements in human life. Continuous developments make it necessary to have more understandings and more discussions about well-established concepts as well as newly implemented hypothesis and applications of gamma rays. This book presents new visions of gamma ray spectrometry and applications. I hope this book can present part of the useful applications of gamma rays.
