Basic methods of detecting ionizing radiation




The main methods of registration of ionizing radiation are methods that allow register different radiation. Radioactive emissions are invisible, there are no colors, odor or other signs, on the basis of which a person could suspect their presence, so the detection and measurement of radiation is made indirectly on the basis of any of their properties. As a result of the interaction of radioactive radiation with an ionization and the excitation of its neutral atoms and molecules occurs. These processes change the physicochemical properties of the irradiated medium, including biological objects.
