The basic experimental technique, used in the studies of positron annihilation in chemical physics, is the detection of γ-radiation. The main exceptions are the detections of positrons and Ps in the slow positron beam investigations. Gammaspectroscopy is well treated in several books, e.g., in the monograph [2.5] and the textbook by Knoll [3.1]. We shall refer to these books, in particular [3.1], in the discussions of this chapter. Only the techniques of general importance for the chemistry-oriented part of positron annihilation will be treated in some details. The less used techniques will only be briefly mentioned.
