This book presents an overview of the physics of radiation detection and its applications. It covers the origins and properties of different kinds of ionizing radiation, their detection and measurement, and the procedures used to protect people and the environment from their potentially harmful effects. It details the experimental techniques and instrumentation used in different detection systems in a very practical way without sacrificing the physics content. It provides useful formulae and explains methodologies to solve problems related to radiation measurements. With abundance of worked-out examples and end-of-chapter problems, this book enables the reader to understand the underlying physical principles and their applications. Detailed discussions on different detection media, such as gases, liquids, liquefied gases, semiconductors, and scintillators make this book an excellent source of information for students as well as professionals working in related fields. Chapters on statistics, data analysis techniques, software for data analysis, and data acquisition systems provide the reader with necessary skills to design and build practical systems and perform data analysis. * Covers the modern techniques involved in detection and measurement of radiation and the underlying physical principles * Illustrates theoretical and practical details with an abundance of practical, worked-out examples * Provides practice problems at the end of each chapter
-- Projects include many program files in LabView, Mathcad and SPICE which professionals would not have time to create on their own.-- LabView allows engineers to turn their desktop into the instrument-- Analog circuit design is still vital in building communications devices - the addition of LabView makes this process more precise and time efficientThis book presents a study of analog electronics. It consists of theory and closely coupled experiments, which are based entirely on computer-based data acquisition using LabView. The topics included treat many of the relevant aspects of basic modern electronics.
