Original Papers


In biological experiments the ionizing radiation is usually defined by the type, energy and total absorbed dose, as well as by the dose rate. If radiation generated by a physical particle accelerator is employed, we consider it necessary to supplement these data with the value for frequency of pulses of the ionizing radiation jet. As follows from our experiments, this parameter expressively affects the relative biological effect of ionizing radiation.
