The scope of the detection techniques in particle detectors is very wide, depending on the aim of the measurement. Detectors cover the measurement of energies from the very low to the highest of energies observed in cosmic rays. Describing the instrumentation for experiments in high energy physics and astroparticle physics, this edition describes track detectors, calorimeters, particle identification, neutrino detectors, momentum measurement, electronics, and data analysis. It also discusses applications of these detectors in other fields such as nuclear medicine, radiation protection and environmental science. Problem sets have been added to each chapter and additional instructive material has been provided, making this an excellent reference for graduate students and researchers in particle physics.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Review of the hardback: From reviews of the first edition: '... an excellent volume ...The level of detail, especially in the treatment of the physics underlying detector operation, makes it well suited for use by graduate students. Furthermore, its broad coverage, backed by a very extensive list of references, should satisfy the needs of more experienced researchers. I for one anticipate consulting it regularly in the future.' Physics World Bob Brown
Review of the hardback: '... an excellent book for graduate students and researchers in experimental particle physics, and for university staff teaching some undergraduate courses ..." Contemporary Physics Peter I. P. Kalmus
Review of the hardback: Professor Grupen's career has taken him from cosmic ray muons in the 1970s to CERN's ALEPH experiment today, and in writing the book nothing has been left out.' CERN Courier James Gillies
Review of the hardback: '... a comprehensive treatise.' Aslib Book Guide
Review of the hardback: '...clearly laid out in textbook style, with a set of problems at the end of each chapter and solutions at the back. Fully referenced and generously indexed, it also includes five appendices covering fundamental constants, units, relevant material properties, decay schemes and Monte Carlo generators, which all go to make it a fully rounded reference work.' The Observatory
