Abstract : Annotated references (579) are presented on the effects of nuclear radiation on selected properties of a wide range of solid materials. The properties included are: optical absorptance, reflectance, transmittance and emittance; electrical resistivity and conductivity; refractive index; dielectric constant and strength; magnetic permeability; thermal conductivity; and heat capacity. The references are grouped into 6 broad subject categories - General and Surface Studies; Metals and Alloys; Ceramics; Plastics and Other Organic Materials; Alkali halides; and Azides. The references are arranged by property affected and type of radiation within each category. There is an index to specific materials, e.g., copper, polyethylene, etc. Some studies of x-rays are included. Several classes of solids are specifically excluded; silicon and germanium, compound semiconductors and some other intermetallic compounds. (Author)
