Summary: This book, based on a course given by the author at the University of Dortmund for many years, describes the physical principles used in devices for the detection of charged particles and gamma radiation, and the construction and performance of particle detectors. Detectors for particles and radiation are used in many fields of science, including particularly particle physics and nuclear physics experiments, nuclear ...medicine, cosmic ray measurements, space sciences and geological exploration, After an introduction to the physical principles of detection, the book describes in detail the many different types of detector, and includes a discussion of the standard techniques as well as a description of recent developments. The text is well-illustrated with examples from the many fields in which these devices are employed, and the level is sufficiently introductory that the book may be understood by readers from a variety of backgrounds. [read more]
