Measurement And Detection Of Radiation, Second Edition
Publisher: Taylor & Francis | 1995 | 636 pages | ISBN: 1560323175 | PDF | 38,4 mb
The material in this book, which is the result of a 10-year experience obtained in teaching courses related to radiation measurements at the University of Missouri- Rolla, is intended to provide an introductory text on the subject. It includes not only what I believe the beginner ought to be taught but also some of the background material that people involved in radiation measurements should have. The subject matter is addressed to upper-level undergraduates and first-year graduate students. It is assumed that the students have had courses in calculus and differential equations and in basic atomic and nuclear physics. The book should be useful to students in nuclear, mechanical, and electrical engineering, physics, chemistry (for radiochemistry), nuclear medicine, and health physics; to engineers and scientists in laboratories using radiation sources; and to personnel in nuclear power plants.
