This reference book covers the most important electronic systems used in nuclear measurements. It begins with discussions of the basic concepts of electronics, providing an excellent introduction for newcomers, or a helpful review for those with some knowledge of electronics. By covering the fundamental methods and concepts of signal analysis, including counting, energy distribution, time distribution, and particle identification, the book provides a basis for the reader on which she or he can more easily and thoroughly understand the actual components of measurement systems. The sections following the basic material in Electronics for Radiation Measurements describe those circuits needed for nuclear radiation measurements. Various functions of the preamplifier are explained in detail. The most common systems for pulse analysis are discussed, as are modern data acquisition systems used in large-scale experiments where large quantities of data are obtained simultaneously and must be sorted and stored. Auxiliary and essential circuits, such as voltage dividers for photomultiplier tubes and high voltage supplies, are also covered and illustrated with practical examples. This is an invaluable reference for all researchers in nuclear electronics and nuclear physics.Basically, the photomultiplier anode current due to the LED light was held constant by an automatic control loop acting on the high voltage to keep the gain of the ... A schematic diagram of the experimental system is given in Figure 3.36. A digital ... The upper and 12Va lower window output rates Nu and Nt were fed 208.
