Ionizing radiation is utilized in many industrial, medical and research applications. The term ionizing radiation implies that the interaction of the radiation with the object of interest occurs at the atomic level, through the removal of electrons from atoms and molecules. In trying to understand, enhance and develop technologies that utilize ionizing radiation, atomic data and tools to utilize these data sets are essential. In this paper some current applications of ionizing radiation are discussed. The computational tools applied to these situations are outlined. Currently available data sets are reviewed. Data needs are discussed as are some of the efforts underway at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) to enhance both data and tools.
