English term or phrase:gamma-ray
Neutrons or g-rays which irradiate nuclear material induce fissions that produce, on the average, two to three highly energetic prompt fission neutrons and approximately eight prompt g-rays. These radiations are called prompt fission radiations because they are emitted at the time of fission. For up to several minutes after fission, the fission product nuclides continue to emit another six to seven g-rays and approximately 0.01 to 0.02 n/fission.
Здесь g-ray это gamma-ray. Но поскольку нельзя сказать "восемь гамма-лучей" или "восемь гамм-излучений", то какой термин здесь употребить: это гамма-квант или гамма-фотон?
