  Gamma Rays | Radiation Protection Program | US EPA   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
Gamma rays (gamma photons) are emitted from the nucleus of some unstable (radioactive) atoms.
A large portion of gamma radiation largely passes through the body without interacting with tissue--the body is mostly empty space at the atomic level and gamma rays are vanishingly small in size.
Gamma rays can ionize atoms in tissue directly or cause what are known as "secondary ionizations." Ionizations are caused when energy is transferred from gamma rays to atomic particles such as electrons (which are essentially the same as beta particles).

Gamma Phi Beta was the first true sorority because it was started by all women, as opposed to female fraternities which were founded by men.
Gamma Phi’s are women more than willing to reach out to the community and frequently participate in activities that raise money for foundations such as The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and Badger Camp, a camp for physically and mentally disabled children.
The mark of a true Gamma Phi is found in the sister who strives to promote the highest type of womanhood and possesses the desire to build upon the strong foundations of the sorority through academics, extra-curricular activities, community service and Greek involvement.

The gamma ray is identical in nature to light or microwaves, but of very high energy.
Gamma rays interact with material by colliding with the electrons in the shells of atoms.
It is important to note that most alpha and beta emitters also emit gamma rays as part of their decay process.

 Graphics Lab About gamma correction
Gamma correction consists of applying the inverse of this relationship to the image before display, i.e.
For example, if your browser is Netscape Communicator, your image viewer is xv, and the gamma of your display monitor is 2.0, then you can ask xv to apply gamma correction as it displays an image by changing the invoking command in Netscape to "image/*; xv -gamma 2.0 %s".
This is called the system gamma, and it is intended to compensate for the fact that the images you are viewing typically represent brightly illuminated scenes, but you typically viewing them while seated in a dimly illuminated room, which changes the transfer characteristics of your eye.

 The Gamma adjustment page
Basically, gamma is the relationship between the brightness of a pixel as it appears on the screen, and the numerical value of that pixel.
Away from the target gamma the colour of the inner squares shift away from neutral grey, assuming red/cyan, green/magenta, and blue/yellow hues.
The end result is a gamma setting of anywhere between 1.2 and 1.8, depending on the quality of your monitor hardware and the resolution it's set to.

 Gamma-ray Burst FAQ   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
Gamma ray bursts (GRBs for short) are intense and short (approximately 0.1-100 seconds long) bursts of gamma-ray radiation that occur all over the sky approximately once per day at very large distances from Earth.
Gamma rays are very energetic photons (E>10^5 eV), which represent the most extreme portion of the electromagnetic spectrum (ranging from radio waves at the lowest energies through visible optical light at higher energies, to gamma rays at the highest energies).
If there is more than one gamma ray burst on the same day, the letter a, b, c, etc. are added to the name (for example, the second gamma ray burst on July 4, 1999 is called GRB 990704b).

 Monitor calibration and gamma
For photographic film and paper, gamma is defined at the average slope of the response curve in its linear region.
The left portion, which consists of my gamma chart, is used to calibrate gamma and to adjust fl level, which interacts with gamma.
The number in the Gamma box increases as displayed gamma (on the chart) decreases: it indicates the monitor's native (uncorrected) gamma when the monitor is corrected to display gamma = 2.2.

 Gamma Correction and Precision Color (PNG: The Definitive Guide)
Thus, while the default Macintosh ``gamma'' of 1.8 appears close to SGI's default of 1.7, the actual lookup table exponents corresponding to these defaults are 1.8/2.61 and 1/1.7, respectively.
Adjusting the overall brightness of an image via gamma correction is a good first step, but it does not address the issue of color balance.
Because the sRGB color space encompasses gamma and chromaticity information, it is not strictly necessary for a PNG image to include gAMA and cHRM chunks in addition to the sRGB chunk.

 PNG Specification: Gamma Tutorial   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
There are various images around that purport to measure gamma, usually by comparing the intensity of an area containing alternating white and fl with a series of areas of continuous gray of different intensity.
When the resulting image is displayed on a CRT with a gamma of 2.5, the image on screen ends up with a gamma of about 1.25 relative to the original scene, which is appropriate for "dim surround" viewing.
The gamma of the table is actually the reciprocal of the number that "gamma" prints, and it does not include the CRT gamma.

 Gamma: Digital Imaging: Glossary: Learn: Digital Photography Review
When unadjusted, most CRT monitors have a "gamma" of 2.5 which means that pixels with a brightness of 0.5, will be displayed with a brightness of only 0.18 (0.5^2.5) in non-colormanaged applications (*).
Calibration via software and/or hardware ensures that the monitor outputs the image based on a predetermined gamma curve, typically 2.2 for Windows, which is approximately the inverse of the response of the human vision.
The sRGB and Adobe RGB color spaces are also based on a gamma of 2.2.

 Radioactivity
Most gamma rays are somewhat higher in energy than x-rays and therefore are very penetrating.
An example of this pattern is seen with silver isotopes, with two stable isotopes plus one of lower mass which decays by electron capture and one of heavier mass which decays by beta emission.
The radiation was classified by E. Rutherford as alpha, beta, and gamma rays according to their ability to penetrate matter and ionize air.

 GAMMA: The Genoa Active Message MAchine
GAMMA uses IP to spawn the processes of a parallel job, so the additional LAN is really necessary.
GAMMA is not particularly efficient in recovering from packet losses; indeed, we argue that the probability of a packet loss due to a hardware error is negligible, and the possibility of loosing packets due to LAN congestion is better managed by preventing congestion from occurring (for instance, by using smart communication patterns in parallel jobs).
In other words, GAMMA does provide packet retransmission because it is of great help indeed, but does not take care of efficiency when retransmission occurs because this is supposed to be (made) rare.

 GRAPHICS: Gamma
The technical explanations of gamma are irrelevant here — the visual effect of changing gamma values is easy to see.
Gamma considerations are particularly important if you are displaying images with very long gray scales (such as medical diagnostic images and fine fl-and-white photography) or images in which the exact color values are critical (such as works of art and clinical medical photographs):
The default gamma settings for Macintosh (1.8 target gamma) and Windows (2.2 target gamma) monitors are quite different, and this can lead to unpleasant surprises when you first see your images displayed on "the other" platform.
