ionizing radiation

ionizing radiation is radiation in which an individual particle (for example, a photon, electron, or helium nucleus) carries energy capable of displacing electrons from atoms or molecules, thereby producing ions. Alpha and beta particles, as well as gamma and x-rays, are all examples of ionizing radiation.
