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.

This textbook provides a clear, concise and comprehensive review of the physical principles behind the devices used to detect charged particles and gamma rays, and the construction and performance of these detectors. This second edition has been thoroughly revised and updated to include all the latest developments in detector technology. This lucid textbook is well illustrated throughout with examples from the many areas in science in which these detectors are used, especially particle physics, nuclear physics, nuclear medicine, cosmic ray physics, space sciences and geological exploration. It provides both a coursebook for students in physics, and a useful introduction for researchers in other fields.
