Radiation detectors are devices for measuring nuclear, light or electromagnetic radiation, also known as Geiger counter or particle detectors. It consists of two main elements such as processing electronics and the Geiger tube. The Geiger tube is filled by a low-pressure inert gas like argon, helium, or neon. It also measures the emission of ionizing radiation of alpha (α) particles, beta (β) particles, and gamma (γ) rays.
