# Radiation levels on inside surface of Dyson sphere

A couple of things occur to me:

1. The Earth has a magnetosphere, which deflects the worst of the cosmic rays and radiation produced by Sol.
2. We have an atmosphere which scatters and further attenuates said radiation.

So, the questions raises itself: What would the radiation levels be in a Dyson sphere of radius 1AU, given that:

1. It is not guaranteed to have an equal atmosphere across the entire inner surface.
2. I don't see how it could have a magnetosphere to deflect or absorb radiation.

I suppose it, absorbing almost 100% of it's stars output could theoretically, generate an EM field, but surely that would require a mind boggling amount of energy?

So taking these things into account, surely the radiation levels on the inner surface of a Dyson sphere would be lethal to humans?

Note that this is just dissing the solid shell biosphere model, not Dyson spheres in general! If you have a Dyson swarm you can have O'Neill habitat cylinders orbiting as part of it, and they would be as protected as any other space habitat. They could orbit outside, supplied energy and light using microwave relays and mirrors (and protected from solar radiation by the shell). And if you want to give the habitats magnetospheres, you have more than $10^{26}$ Watt to generate it from - Dyson spheres are for providing mind-boggling amounts of energy (the proposed spacecraft shields use energy of the order of kW or MA, so there are lots of orders of magnitude to play with).
