Title: Alpha/beta radiation shielding materials

Abstract

Alpha/beta radiation barrier materials and structures formed to include the barrier materials are described. Barrier materials include a matrix and particulate materials contained in the matrix. The particulates include alpha/beta radiation absorbers. Alpha/beta radiation absorbers of the barrier materials can be molecular, particulates, or defined nanostructures that are capable of absorbing incident alpha/beta particle energies. Matrix materials can include organic or inorganic materials including thermoplastic polymers, thermoset polymers, glasses, ceramics, etc.
