Andrew Holmes-Siedle is a physicist and consultant to Brunel University of West London, collaborating on CERN research and developing silicon devices. He previously spent over ten years working in Princeton (USA) on space and defence programmes and owns REM Oxford Ltd.. Len Adams is a consultant to Spur Electron, advising the British National Space Centre and other agencies. He is also an Associate Professor at Brunel University of West London. He recently retired from the European Space Agency in The Netherlands, where his group handled most of the radiation problems for the Agency.
... contains a lot of valuable material and is not only a handbook, but also an excellent textbook. CERN Courier ... enriched with many references to useful websites, including databases. CERN Courier The book establishes both Holmes-Siedle and Adams as two of the most fertile and fruitful research scholars working in the field of radiation environments. Current Engineering Practice Holmes-Siedle and Adams' engrossing handbook is probably the most readable, ambitious and intelligent work on radiation effects yet published, that also stands out as a comprehensive guide to the literature, both printed and on-line. At the same time, it is technically accurate but accessible to practitioners as well as researchers ... a most commendable book. Current Engineering Practice
