In this book, authors present current research, studies and technologies to look deeper into gamma rays. The chapters discussed in this book are useful for shielding and dosimetric application for gamma rays in science and engineering. This book focuses on knowledge about production, absorption and measurement of gamma rays, geological objects and gamma radiation, interaction parameters for shielding and dosimetric interest, induced gamma rays, shielding materials, back scattering and various applications. The book demonstrates the theoretical, experimental and simulation for interaction of gamma rays with different types of materials. A thorough description of gamma rays interaction, application of interaction parameters, shielding assessment and dosimetric applications are seen throughout the chapters. Summarized highlights are depicted in each chapter for further utilization of knowledge. This book is an excellent learning tool for the radiation physics scientific community. It can also be used as a self-learning book to understand gamma rays. This book is a collection of investigations for students, researchers and scientists working in the field of radiation physics. Authors of respective chapters are solely responsible for plagiarism of content in their chapters, and regarding the permissions for the previously published work (text and diagrams). The journey of writing the book could only be completed with the strong support of editor's organizations, family members and authors. Authors have participated by sharing research work in the form of chapters. A collection of suitable chapters forms the present book.
