Executive Summary

National Council on Radiation Protection and Measurements (NCRP) Report No. 176, Radiation Safety Aspects of Nanotechnology, is intended primarily for operational health physicists, radiation safety officers, and internal dosimetrists who are responsible for establishing and implementing radiation safety programs involving nanotechnology. Nanotechnology is the understanding, engineering, control and use of matter at the nanoscale (i.e., dimensions between ~1 and 100 nm) where unique material phenomena enable novel applications. The Report also provides useful information for workers, managers, and regulators who are either working directly with or have other responsibilities related to work with radioactive nanomaterials or the use of radiation in nanotechnology.
