Abstract

In Chapter 8, the excitation was exclusively by X-ray irradiation. In this chapter the stress will be on other types of ionising radiation such as σ rays and charged particles. In many cases, their energy will be higher than that of X rays. In all applications the counting of the number of ionizing events is essential. This method of radiation detection gives information on quantities such as the kind of radiation, the intensity, the energy, the time of emission, the direction and the position of the emission. Many of the applications use luminescent materials in the form of large single crystals.
