energy absorbed locally per unit mass as a result of radiation exposure which is transferred through ionisation, displacement damage and excitation and is the sum of the ionising dose and non-ionising dose
NOTE 1 It is normally represented by D, and in accordance with the definition, it can be calculated as the quotient of the energy imparted due to radiation in the matter in a volume element and the mass of the matter in that volume element. It is measured in units of gray, Gy (1 Gy = 1 J kg-1 (= 100 rad)).
NOTE 2 The absorbed dose is the basic physical quantity that measures radiation exposure.
