Recent Advances in Instrumentation

  • W. A. Higinbotham


Our common interest is in nuclear radiation—its origin, its measurement, its uses. In order to review what is new in instrumentation, we might consider the sources of radiation, radiation detectors, electronic components which might be employed in these circuits, techniques for using the above, and systems designed for particular jobs.
