Particle Detectors

Fundamentals and Applications

«Before I opened the cover of the book, I made a list of topics that I feel should be covered in a comprehensive treatise on particle detection. As I read through, I found that each one of those, and many more, are treated with an admirable balance of technical depth and readability. I highly recommend this book for any "student" of nuclear instrumentation, whether at the beginning of or deep into their career. The book promises to be an invaluable resource for many years to come.»

This book describes the fundamentals of particle detectors as well as their applications.

Detector development is an important part of nuclear, particle and astroparticle physics, and through its applications in radiation imaging, it paves the way for advancements in the biomedical and materials sciences. Knowledge in detector physics is one of the required skills of an experimental physicist in these fields. The breadth of knowledge required for detector development comprises many areas of physics and technology, starting from interactions of particles with matter, gas- and
solid-state physics, over charge transport and signal development, to elements of microelectronics.

The book's aim is to describe the fundamentals of detectors and their different variants and implementations as clearly as possible and as deeply as needed for a thorough understanding. While this comprehensive opus contains all the materials taught in experimental particle physics lectures or modules addressing detector physics at the Master's level, it also goes well beyond these basic requirements.

This is an essential text for students who want to deepen their knowledge in this field. It is also a highly useful guide for lecturers and scientists looking for a starting point for detector development work.

Om forfatteren

Hermann Kolanoski is Emeritus Professor of Physics at the Humboldt University Berlin and at the research centre DESY (Zeuthen). After having received his doctoral degree in Bonn he worked at universities in Stanford, Bonn and Dortmund before joining Humboldt University in 1995. His field of expertise is experimental particle and astroparticle physics. He currently participates in research with the IceCube Observatory at the South Pole and ATLAS at CERN. His work in
detector development includes gaseous wire chambers, calorimeters, photon detectors, and trigger electronics as well as applications in medical physics.

Norbert Wermes is Professor of Physics at the University of Bonn. His field of research is experimental particle physics and detector physics. He has conducted research with experiments at the particle physics research centres DESY (Hamburg), SLAC (Stanford), Fermilab (Chicago), KEK (Tsukuba), and CERN (Geneva). After graduating with a PhD in physics from the University of Bonn, he was a postdoc at Stanford University, and a CERN staff scientist. In 1989 he became a professor at the University
of Heidelberg, before returning to Bonn in 1992. With his group, he currently carries out research with the experiments ATLAS (CERN) and Belle II (KEK). In detector physics, his focus is on semiconductor pixel detectors and microelectronics.

«a gem of a book... easy to read and conceptual discussions are well supported by numerous examples, plots, and illustrations of excellent quality.»

Peter Krizan, CERN Courier

«...the authors provide the community with a fantastic resource for all aspects of modern instrumentation in the scientific and societal applications of particle physics. This monumental textbook, with its almost 1000 pages, covers in a very comprehensive, clear and inclusive way all the basic physics and technologies for detectors. Each of the topics is introduced in an accessible manner for advanced graduate students, including concrete examples, and is then further developed in depth for experts. This also makes it a precious reference book.»

Peter Jenni, Institute of Physics, University of Freiburg and Experimental Physics Department, CERN

«Starting from a thorough introduction of fundamentals easily understood by the non-specialist and arriving at the cutting edge of modern device application, this well-produced volume offers an important reference for researchers and students in physics and optics.»

Silvano Donati, Optics & Phototonics News
