About The Book

This thoroughly revised fifth edition of the book is basically for M.Sc. Physics students. M.Sc. Chemistry and Engineering students will find it equally useful. The book covers the most important areas of the low energy Nuclear Science, with more stress on modern techniques used in experimental Nuclear Physics. Particle Accelerators and the detectors are discussed in details. Nuclear Energy is the need of today, therefore theory of neutrons along with nuclear reactors and the Chemical & Biological effects of Radiations are given special attention. Last chapters are devoted on Cosmic Rays and Elementary Particles. At the end of each chapter a large number of exercises, short answer questions, problems and references are given to provide self test and to help those who are preparing for NET, GATE, IES, IAS and other competitive exams.
