The scope of the detection techniques in particle detectors is very wide, depending on the aim of the measurement. Detectors cover the measurement of energies from the very low to the highest of energies observed in cosmic rays. Describing the instrumentation for experiments in high energy physics and astroparticle physics, this edition describes track detectors, calorimeters, particle identification, neutrino detectors, momentum measurement, electronics, and data analysis. It also discusses applications of these detectors in other fields such as nuclear medicine, radiation protection and environmental science. Problem sets have been added to each chapter and additional instructive material has been provided, making this an excellent reference for graduate students and researchers in particle physics.

Author Biography - Claus Grupen
Claus Grupen is Professor Dr. in the Department of Physics at Siegen University. He was awarded the Special High Energy and Particle Physics Prize of the European Physical Society for establishing the existence of the gluon in independent and simultaneous ways, as member of the PLUTO experiment at DESY in 1995. Boris Shwartz is a Leading Researcher at the Budker Institute of Nuclear Physics. He has worked on the development and construction of the detectors used in several projects, including the KEDR and CMD-2 detectors, WASA experiment, and the Belle collaboration.
