… a very good textbook, providing a solid introduction to radiation detection and measurement for upper-level undergraduate and first-year graduate students in the field of nuclear science and engineering.
―Medical Physics, July 2012
This book provides a solid introduction to radiation detection and measurement for upper-level undergraduate and first-year graduate students in the fields of nuclear science and engineering. … it may be used as a good background reference by those interested in a refresher course in the physics underlying detection. The review chapters on statistics, atomic and nuclear physics, interaction of radiation with matter, and data analysis methods are well written and could appeal to medical physicists.
―Olivier Gayou, Doody’s Listings and Reviews, August 2011
This book is an excellent review of nuclear detection systems. The updated text is particularly timely with regard to the current zeitgeist for homeland security, nuclear non-proliferation, and nuclear security.
―Professor Steven Biegalski, University of Texas at Austin, USA
