Abstract:

The operational characteristics of current semi-conductor photon detectors are reviewed. Particular attention is paid to comparison of these experimental detectors with the conventional photomultiplier tube. The semi-conductor detectors offer significant advantages for multielement analyses in fields such as atomic absorption and atomic emission spectroscopy. Relevant literature is listed and abstracted.
