Description: The scope of the detection techniques in particle detectors is very wide, depending on the aim of the measurement. Detectors cover the measurement of energies from the very low to the highest of energies observed in cosmic rays. Describing the current state of the art instrumentation for experiments in high energy physics and astroparticle physics, this new edition describes track detectors, calorimeters, particle identification, neutrino detectors, momentum measurement, electronics, and data analysis. It also discusses up-to-date applications of these detectors in other fields such as nuclear medicine, radiation protection and environmental science. Problem sets have been added to each chapter and additional instructive material has been provided, making this an excellent reference for graduate students and researchers in particle physics. Complete coverage of the field of nuclear and particle physics instrumentation, showing how particle detectors can be used in many practical situations Problem sections allow the reader to monitor their understanding of the material presented A detailed glossary comprises the main properties of the various detectors, and numerical tables and appendices help with the construction of detectors. : : , , , , , . : , . , ; .
