The main difference between Irradiation and Contamination is that the Irradiation is a process by which an object is exposed to radiation and Contamination is a presence of an unwanted constituent, harmful substance or impurity in a material, physical body, or environment
Irradiation is the process by which an object is exposed to radiation. The exposure can originate from various sources, including natural sources. Most frequently the term refers to ionizing radiation, and to a level of radiation that will serve a specific purpose, rather than radiation exposure to normal levels of background radiation. The term irradiation usually excludes the exposure to non-ionizing radiation, such as infrared, visible light, microwaves from cellular phones or electromagnetic waves emitted by radio and TV receivers and power supplies.
Contamination is the presence of a constituent, impurity, or some other undesirable element that spoils, corrupts, infects, makes unfit, or makes inferior a material, physical body, natural environment, workplace, etc.If the additional reactions are detrimental, other terms are often applied such as “toxin,” “poison,” or pollutant, depending on the type of molecule involved. Chemical decontamination of substance can be achieved through decomposition, neutralization, and physical processes, though a clear understanding of the underlying chemistry is required.
An act of irradiating, or state of being irradiated.
illumination; irradiance; brilliance.
mental light or illumination.
The apparent enlargement of a bright object seen upon a dark ground, due to the fact that the portions of the retina around the image are stimulated by the intense light; as when a dark spot on a white ground appears smaller, or a white spot on a dark ground larger, than it really is, especially when a little out of focus.
a process of sterilisation whereby radiation is passed through a bag containing food, utensils, etc., to sterilise the contents.
The act or process of contaminating
Something which contaminates.
A process whereby words with related meanings come to have similar sounds.
The influence of one form (often from a foreign language) on the historical development of another form to which it may be related in meaning.
The process of making a material or surface unclean or unsuited for its intended purpose, usually by the addition or attachment of undesirable foreign substances.
