Course review:
1. Measurement chain (block diagram) - sensors/detectors, detector signal processing, digitalization, analysis, measurement results prezentation. 2. Convertors of physical units - sensors - features (static/dynamic), error minimazition, mechanical, temerature, electrical and magnetical sensors, ionization radiation detectors, chemical sensors. 3. Signal acquisition from detectors - analogue/digital, aplification and signal shaping, digitization (ADC/DAC), analysis in time and amplitude domain (discrimination, SCA, MCA, TOF, coincidence measurements). 4. Optics radiation detection - photomultipliers, function, types. 5. Ionization radiation detectors - units, separation (ionization chambers, proportional counters, Geiger-Muller detectors, corone detectors, scintillation detectors, semiconductor detectors). 6. Up-to-date constructions of sensors - smart sensors, implementation of computers, miniaturazition. 7. Nanosensors - application of nanotechnology, principles of novel approaches.
