Only gamma rays can do it, since all other forms of light are too low-energy.
When the gamma rays enter the sleeve, they interact with that photon gas, annihilating into electron-positron pairs.
The name is descriptive: they are extremely intense bursts of gamma rays, the highest energy form of light.
No word on gamma rays, Delta Squad, Epsilononicom, or Zetabyte.
These have been named the alpha, beta, and gamma rays, respectively.
The "gamma rays" are waves, like the X-rays, not material particles.
Radium compounds send forth three kinds of rays, distinguished as alpha, beta, and gamma rays.
Then they were instantly destroyed by atomic bombing, or gamma rays.
The gamma rays are very penetrating and are not deflected in the magnetic or electric fields.
They have for the sake of convenience been called the alpha, beta, and gamma rays.
gamma ray n.
Electromagnetic radiation emitted from the nucleus of an atom by radioactive decay and having energies in a range from ten thousand (104) to ten million (107) electron volts.
|gamma ray |
A stream of high-energy electromagnetic radiation given off by an atomic nucleus undergoing radioactive decay. Because the wavelengths of gamma rays are shorter than those of x-rays, gamma rays have greater energy and penetrating power than x-rays. Gamma rays are emitted by pulsars, quasars, and radio galaxies but cannot penetrate the Earth's atmosphere. See more at radioactive decay.
