Section 10 of the Radiation Safety Manual: Radiation Producing Machines
- Application for Authorization to Use Radiation Producing Machines
- Electron Microscope Users
Operators of electron microscopes (scanning electron microscopes, transmission electron microscopes) do not require the more extensive radiation safety training, as do users of X-ray diffraction and cabinet radiography units. However, the California Department of Public Health does require electron microscopes to be registered (contact EH&S, Radiation Safety Office within 30 days of machine acquisition) and that operators of these units have some minimal awareness of radiation safety. To satisfy the awareness requirement, users must review the Electron Microscope Radiation Safety Guide.
