Physicists and electrical engineers describe analog circuitry that is used to process the charge generated by radiation detectors to extract useful information that can be transformed into a stream of bits for digital computers. Their topics include integrated analog signal processing readout front ends for particle detectors, low-noise detectors through incremental sigma-delta analog-digital converters, digital pulse-processing techniques for X-ray, silicon photo-multipliers for high-performance scintillation crystal readout applications, and complementary metal-oxide semiconductor image sensors for radiation detection.
