Item description for Noble Gas Detectors by Elena Aprile...

This book discusses the physical properties of noble fluids, operational principles of detectors based on these media, and the best technical solutions to the design of these detectors. Essential attention is given to detector technology: purification methods and monitoring of purity, information readout methods, electronics, detection of hard ultra-violet light emission, selection of materials, cryogenics etc.

The book is mostly addressed to physicists and graduate students involved in the preparation of fundamental next generation experiments, nuclear engineers developing instrumentation for national nuclear security and for monitoring nuclear materials.

Reviews - What do customers think about Noble Gas Detectors?

An essential reference  Feb 18, 2008
To this day, gamma ray detection is dominated by a sixty year old technology: thallium activated sodium iodide, NaI(Tl), crystals are still regarded as the state of the art for large-area gamma ray spectroscopy. Though much better materials for room temperature gamma ray spectroscopy have appeared fairly recently, like cadmium telluride, mercuric iodide, and the new lanthanum halide scintillators, one can only fashion relatively small sized detectors from them. This book discusses an under appreciated technology, based upon high-pressure noble gases, in particular xenon, which has the potential of providing much better energy resolution, by a factor of 2 to 10 times better than NaI(Tl). Since noble gas detectors utilize a gaseous (or liquified gas) medium and they are manufactured rather than grown, detectors of arbitrary size and geometry are possible. This technology has much to offer for modern nuclear medicine and homeland security. This book will hopefully raise the profile of this important technology. The most serious drawback about this book is its price. A valuable resource like this should be much more affordable.
