The theoretical investigations on the concept of new active radiation shields based on graphene are discussed. The cross section of the gamma and X radiation interaction with a charged graphene layer is presented and used to calculate the linear attenuation coefficient of the proposed shield. Finally, the technical concept and potential applications of the graphene shield, as well as some potential difficulties, are discussed.
