    The effect of pressure on yields of H atoms produced by X-irradiation of solid hydrogen has been studied using electron spin resonance (ESR) spectroscopy at around 4 K. The yields of H atoms have been found to decrease with an increase in pressure. We have concluded that the above finding is due...

    Irradiated South Sea cultured pearls (SSCPs) from the Pinctada maxima mollusk typically show colors from light gray to silver. It is difficult to identify gamma-ray irradiation of SSCPs using standard gemological methods because of their thick nacre. Therefore, an advanced analytical technique...
