    In writing this monograph, the author has tried to keep in mind the needs of those nuclear chemists who, because they are not trained in electronics, find themselves confused by the bewildering array of equipment available for radiation measure- ment. Therefore, it was felt that a review of the nuclear radiation detection problem was in order, with particular empha- sis on new methods and their practical aspects. Fundamentals of radiation properties, radionuclide decay, the calculations involved, and methods of detection provide the basis for a thorough understanding of the analytical procedures. Page: View: Although elemental semiconductors such as silicon and germanium are standard for energy dispersive spectroscopy in the laboratory, their use for an increasing range of applications is becoming marginalized by their physical limitations, namely the need for ancillary cooling, their modest stopping powers, and radiation intolerance. Segre, ed. Korff, Electron and Nuclear Counters, D.

    Fundamentals of radiation properties, radionuclide decay, the calculations involved, and methods of detection provide the basis for a thorough understanding of the analytical procedures. New materials of construction have made possible a number of im- provements in conventional detectors, while several new detector types have been made available Measurement and detection of radiation book the experimenter. The most common detectors make use of one of the two main processes by which radiation transfers energy to a stopping material, i. This eBook is no longer available for sale. Many of the new techniques in nuclear data processing were inspired by progress in digital computer technology, which has resulted in a very desirable compatibility between modern nuclear equipment and digital com- puters. Care has been taken to define the more important technical terms used for describing the performance of nuclear counting equipment, in the hope that this will help the experimenter interpret published specifi- cations of commercial equipment.

    Compound semiconductors, on the other hand, encompass such a wide range of physical and electronic properties that they have become viable competitors in a number of applications. So far, only a few have evolved sufficiently to produce commercial detection systems. New to the Fourth Edition New chapters on nuclear forensics and nuclear medicine instrumentation, covering basic principles and applications as well as open-ended problems that encourage more in-depth research Updated references and bibliographies New and expanded problems As useful to students and nuclear professionals as its popular predecessors, this fourth edition continues to carefully explain the latest radiation detector technology and measurement techniques. Each type of detector will be discussed both in terms of its principle of operation and its applicability to various problems in counting and spectrometry. The updated text is particularly timely with regard to the current zeitgeist for homeland security, nuclear non-proliferation, and nuclear security.
