Modern techniques of radiation synthesis, applied for the synthesis of materials, are reviewed, including ionizing radiation (α-particles, β-particles/electron beam, γ- and X-rays, neutron and proton irradiation, and ion beams), as well as nonionizing laser ablation and UV irradiation. Formation and/or modification processes of a series of materials, in particular, for nanostructural composites, on the basis of elemental metals, oxides, salts, and polymers are discussed. Radiation-fabricated membranes are briefly described.
