Types of Radiation Detectors
   Types of Radiation Detectors       
   Your choices are...         
   Ionization Chamber       An instrument in which an electric field is applied across a volume of gas. Often its geometry is cylindrical. Electrons become attached to neutral molecules to form negative ions. When an electric field is applied to the gas, the ions drift along the lines of force to produce an ionization current. 
   Proportional Counter       When the electric field strength at the center electrode of a pulse ionization chamber is increased above a certain level, the size of the output pulse from the chamber starts to increase but is still proportional to the initial ionization. A device operated in this way is called a proportional counter. It allows on to detect a very low initial ionization, even down to a single ion pair. 
   Geiger-Mueller Counter       Uses the ionization of a medium as the basic detection process. It consists of a cylindrical metal tube is filled with a gas at low pressure and a long wire along the axis of the tube. When a high energy particle or photon enters the tube through a thin window at one end, some of the atoms of the gas become ionized. An "avalanche" of electrons results in the region of intense electric field near the wire, producing a current pulse at the output of the tube. After the pulse is amplified it can be used to trigger an electronic counter or delivered to a loud speaker, which clicks every time a particle is detected. 
   Scintillation Detector       Usually uses a solid or liquid material whose atoms are easily excited by the incoming radiation. These excited atoms emit visible light when they return to their ground state. Common materials used as scintillators are crystals of sodium iodide and certain plastics. If such a material is attached to one end of a photomultiplier tube the photons emitted by the scintillator can be converted to an electric signal. This pulse can, in turn, be sent to an electronic counter. The scintillator device is much more sensitive than the Geiger Counter, mainly because of the higher density of the detecting medium. 
   Semiconductor Diode Detector       Essentially a reverse-bias-p-n junction. As an energetic particle passes through the junction, electrons are excited into the conducting band and holes are formed in the valence band. The internal electric field sweeps the electrons toward the positive (n) side and the hole toward the negative (p) side. This creates a pulse of current, which can be measured with an electronic counter. 
   Dosimeter       A dosimeter is a detector specifically designed to measure radiation dose (exposure). Dosimeter types are: pocket (ion) chambers, based on integrated circuit components, film badge, thermoluminescent device (TLD) and neutron moderation (spherical) dosimeters.
