Detection

Abstract

The basic problem of X-ray detection is that of converting the X-rays into a form of energy which can be measured and integrated over a finite period of time. There are numerous ways of doing this and each method depends upon the ability of X-rays to ionise matter. The fundamental difference between the various classes of detector is the subsequent fate of the electrons which are produced by the ionisation process.
