About the book
This book describes basics and advanced techniques and methods in ionizing radiation measurements. Ionizing radiation includes all types of radiation: electromagnetic radiation like Gamma radiation and x-rays, and particle radiation including Alpha, Beta, and neutrons, other types of ionizing radiation might be included in this book. Basics of ionizing radiation dosimetry, theories, concepts, and even the units should be highlighted within this book. Techniques, instruments, and methods of radiation detection and measurements are numerous, some are active and others are passive, also, some techniques are old and there are recent ones. All techniques since the discovery of radiation should be described and discussed. This book describes why we should be interested in measuring ionizing radiation and why a lot of effort is paid toward defining the quantity of ionizing radiation with better accuracy and with higher precision. When this branch of science will stop? And up to when the research in radiation dosimetry should continue?
