Nuclear Radiation Detection, Measurements and Analysis covers various aspects of interactions of nuclear radiations like gamma and X-rays, charged particles like electrons, protons, alpha particles and other heavy ions and neutrons. The important types of detectors for these radiations are described with reference to the principle of operation, structure, working, key features etc. Different types of electronic modules which are helpful in processing and analysing the output pulses from such detectors are also described. The various techniques used for acquiring experimental data using the detectors and the associated electronic modules as well as for analysing the acquired data are discussed at length. Some specialized detector configurations and special techniques are also elaborated. Simple and informative illustrations help in understanding the various concepts presented in the text.

The updated and much expanded 3e of the Handbook of Radioactivity Analysis is an authoritative reference providing the principles, practical techniques, and procedures for the accurate measurement of radioactivity from the very low levels encountered in the environment to higher levels measured in radioisotope research, clinical laboratories, biological sciences, radionuclide standardization, nuclear medicine, nuclear power, and fuel cycle facilities and in the implementation of nuclear forensic analysis and nuclear safeguards. The book describes the basic principles of radiation detection and measurement and the preparation of samples from a wide variety of matrices, assists the investigator or technician in the selection and use of appropriate radiation detectors, and presents state-of-the-art methods of analysis. Fundamentals of radiation properties, radionuclide decay, the calculations involved, and methods of detection provide the basis for a thorough understanding of the analytical procedures. The Handbook of Radioactivity Analysis, 3e, is suitable as a teaching text for university and professional training courses. The only comprehensive reference that describes the principles of detection and practical applications of every type of radioactivity detector currently used. The new 3e is broader in scope, with revised and expanded chapters, new authors, and seven new chapters on Alpha Spectrometry, Radionuclide Standardization, Radioactive Aerosol Measurements, Environmental Radioactivity Monitoring, Marine Radioactivity Analysis, Nuclear Forensic Analysis and Analytical Techniques in Nuclear Safeguards Discusses in detail the principles, theory and practice applied to all types of radiation detection and measurement, making it useful for both teaching and research
