Description:

bubble chamber | A vessel filled with a superheated transparent liquid (most often liquid hydrogen) used to detect electrically charged particles moving through it.\ncalorimeter | An object used for calorimetry, or the process of measuring the heat of chemical reactions or physical changes as well as heat capacity.\nCherenkov detector | A particle detector using the speed threshold for light production, the speed-dependent light output, or the velocity-dependent light direction of Cherenkov radiation.\ncloud chamber | A particle detector used for detecting ionizing radiation.\ndosimeter | A device that measures exposure to ionizing radiation.\nelectroscope | An early scientific instrument used to detect the presence and magnitude of electric charge on a body.\nGeiger counter | An instrument used for measuring ionizing radiation.\nionization chamber | The simplest of all gas-filled radiation detectors and is widely used for the detection and measurement of certain types of ionizing radiation: X-rays, gamma rays, and beta particles.\nscintillation counter | An instrument used for detecting and measuring ionizing radiation.\nsemiconductor detector | A device that uses a semiconductor (usually silicon or germanium) to measure the effect of incident charged particles or photons.\ntransition edge sensor | A type of cryogenic particle detector that exploits the strongly temperature-dependent resistance of the superconducting phase transition.
