Ionizing radiation was a form of radiation which carried sufficient energy to ionize an atom or molecule. It could be both natural or artificially generated.

Ionizing radiation had the ability to interfere with a starship's sensors. In 2370, Geordi La Forge suggested that the asteroid containing the USS Pegasus be blanketed in ionizing radiation, which also was found naturally in the same area, in order to prevent its discovery by Romulans. (TNG: "The Pegasus")

When Geordi La Forge was investigating the mysterious disappearances of his former crewmates from the USS Victory on Tarchannen III in 2367, he performed a screen for ionizing radiation, without success. (TNG: "Identity Crisis")
