Radiation Detection and Measurement (Paperback)

Pre-order for despatch on publication.


Radiation Detection and Measurement, Fifth Edition,provides authoritative information on the instruments and techniques used for the detection and spectroscopy of ionizing radiation originating in atomic or nuclear processes. The most comprehensive textbook available on the subject, this classic volume contains detailed yet student-friendly coverage of radiation sources and interactions, counting statistics and error prediction, Geiger-Mueller Counters, ionization chambers, gamma ray detectors, and more.

The fifth edition contains new and revised material throughout, including up-to-date coverage of current scientific literature and leading-edge detection and measurement technologies. The text clearly explains the principles of operation and basic characteristics of a wide range of detector systems, including organic and inorganic scintillators, photomultiplier tubes, high-pressure xenon spectrometers, and lithium-drifted silicon detectors. Also available in enhanced eBook format, this leading textbook is ideal for first courses in nuclear instrumentation or radiation measurements, and a valuable review and reference guide for scientists and engineers actively involved in radiation measurements.
