A gamma radiation scan

Gamma radiation was the most energetic form of electromagnetic radiation, encompassing the shortest wavelengths – less than 10e−10×10−10 meters – in the electromagnetic spectrum. Nuclear processes, like fusion and antimatter reactions, have an association with this radiation.

The Federation used gamma rays to recrystallize dilithium, which was used in warp cores. (Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home)

During a scan of Aldean DNA, Doctor Beverly Crusher was able to confirm that gamma ray exposure was not responsible for the Aldeans' sterility. (TNG: "When The Bough Breaks")

Paul Stubbs uses gamma radiation to sterilize a population of nanites in the Enterprise's computer core

Wesley Crusher's sentient nanites could be killed with gamma radiation. (TNG: "Evolution")

The lateral sensors of the USS Enterprise-D could be set to detect gamma radiation. (TNG: "Silicon Avatar")

When the spaceborne species dubbed Junior accelerated, an internal buildup of gamma particles was registered. (TNG: "Galaxy's Child")

When Doctor Timicin tried to revitalize the sun Praxillus, one of the side-effects was a seventeen hundred percent rise in gamma radiation levels. (TNG: "Half a Life")

The Crystalline Entity left behind a trail of antiprotons and gamma radiation. By using a gamma scan, the path of the creature could be detected. (TNG: "Silicon Avatar")

In 2368, Jean-Luc Picard told William T. Riker to have science lab 3 begin a series of gamma emission tests on an experimental soliton wave. (TNG: "New Ground")

The USS Rio Grande was exposed to high levels of gamma radiation in 2370 after it traveled near Orellius Minor. (DS9: "Paradise")

Klingon mines emitted gamma rays that caused severe radiation burns. After the IKS Drovana struck such a mine in 2372, Dr. Julian Bashir treated fifteen badly burnt crewmen. (DS9: "Sons of Mogh")

The damaged warp core of Tieran's Ilari starship leaked drive plasma and gamma radiation. (VOY: "Warlord")

A set of binary pulsars encountered by USS Voyager in 2374 emitted high levels of gamma radiation. (VOY: "Scientific Method")

In 2376, the Vaadwaur homeworld was found to be heavily contaminated with highly toxic levels of gamma radiation. (VOY: "Dragon's Teeth")

Borg weaponry produced gamma radiation. The Brunali homeworld had residual gamma radiation due to numerous Borg incursions. (VOY: "Child's Play")
