"This textbook is a must-have for everyone who studies, teaches, or uses cutting-edge applications of radiation detection and measurements."
―Miltos Alamaniotis, Ph.D., School of Nuclear Engineering, Purdue University
"The organization of the book is ideal for undergraduate nuclear engineering laboratory classes, and I think it is very well written. Also, it has many examples of calculations that definitely enhance one’s ability to understand the material."
―Lawrence F. Miller, Professor of Nuclear Engineering, The University of Tennessee
"... an excellent teaching resource for both undergraduate and graduate courses in radiation detection. The numerous examples and exercises have helped my students learn to apply fundamental and advanced concepts in radiation detection. I have used the third edition in my classes for the past four years, and I look forward to the publication of the new edition."
―John Mattingly, Professor, Department of Nuclear Engineering, North Carolina State University
"Nuclear instrumentation and measurement are key aspects that contribute to the quality of scientific programs in the fields of physics, energy, fuel cycle, waste management, safeguards, and homeland security. Furthermore, measurements relying on nuclear physics now play an important role in various fields of application such as biology, medicine, and the environment. Nicholas Tsoulfanidis and Sheldon Landsberger through this fourth edition successfully realize the challenge to cover all these application areas that use instrumentation and radiation detection."
―Prof. Dr. Abdallah Lyoussi, National Institute for Nuclear Science and Technology (INSTN), French Atomic Energy and Alternative Energies Commission (CEA)
"... concise and comprehensive ... very useful for students, academics and professionals in the development and application of sensors for ionising radiation and beyond."
―Dr Bjoern Seitz, School of Physics & Astronomy, University of Glasgow
"This one-of-a-kind book is invaluable in teaching laboratory-based introductory courses in radiation measurement techniques. The new chapters on nuclear forensics and nuclear medicine are important additions to the previous edition’s chapters on radiation measurement applications."
―Eric Benton, Department of Physics, Oklahoma State University
"One of the very few books with cross sections, efficiencies, major reactions, standard detectors ... all together. A single stand-alone resource for advanced undergraduates through research level with full references."
―Dr. Duane Doty, Department of Physics and Astronomy, California State University Northridge
"An excellent text that covers counting statistics, radiation interactions with matter, and the basics of radiation detector design."
―Steven R. Biegalski, Professor, Department of Mechanical Engineering, The University of Texas at Austin
"A large amount of graphic illustrations and in-text examples make it an excellent textbook or reference for teaching undergraduate or graduate students. It nicely covers the relevant areas in ionizing radiation detection, and gives a good introduction to emerging areas in nuclear detection such as nuclear forensics and nuclear medicine. I highly endorse the book."
―Lei R. Cao, Director, Nuclear Analysis and Radiation Sensor Lab, Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, The Ohio State University
"... offers the perfect level of material for undergraduates in the radiological sciences."
―David M. Hamby, Professor, Department of Nuclear Engineering and Radiation Health Physics, Oregon State University
