A Classic Text on Radiation Detection
and Measurement Now
Updated and Expanded Building on the proven success of
this widely-used text,
the Third Edition will provide you with a clear understanding
of the methods
and instrumentation used in the detection and measurement
of ionizing radiation.
It provides in-depth coverage of the basic principles of
as well as illustrating their application in a full set of modern
In addition to a complete description of well-established
detection and spectroscopic
methods, many recently developed approaches are also
explored. These include
extensive new discussions of semiconductor detectors with
recently developed scintillation materials and photomultiplier
tubes, and several
gas-filled detectors of new design. Many other updates and
additions have been
made throughout the text and two appendices have been
added. Over 100 new figures
and tables have been included. Key Features of the Third
Edition * Every chapter
has been updated with extensive addition of new references
to relevant articles
in the scientific literature. * A number of new detection
techniques have been
added, strengthening the status of the text as the most
of the topic to be found in any single book. * The writing style
the readability that has attracted favorable response from
readers and reviewers
of the earlier editions. * The author uses his extensive
in radiation measurements, nuclear instrumentation, and
radiation imaging to
provide you with an invaluable resource.
