particles rays produced

Particle detectors are instruments designed for the detection and measurement of sub-atomic particles such as those emitted by radioactive materials, produced by particle accelerators or observed in cosmic rays. They include electrons, protons, neutrons, alpha particles, gamma rays and numerous mesons and baryons. Most detectors utilize in some way the ionization produced when these particles interact with matter.
