This book contains a wealth of information on the physical properties of noble gases, liquids and solids, operational principles of detectors based on these media, and the best technical solutions to challenges encountered in the design of these detectors. Particular attention is given to detector technology: purification methods and monitoring of purity, information readout methods, detection of hard ultra–violet light emission, selection of materials, cryogenics etc.

The book is mostly addressed to physicists and graduate students involved in the preparation of fundamental experiments, nuclear engineers developing instrumentation to monitor nuclear materials, and researchers involved in the development of novel methods to detect ionizing radiation.

From the contents:

  • Noble Fluids as Detector Media
  • Elementary Process Affecting Generation of Signals
  • Scintillation Detectors
  • Ionization Detectors
  • Proportional Scintillation Detectors
  • Two–Phase Electron Emission Detectors
  • Technology of Noble Gas Detectors
