Abstract

Purpose

The purpose of this paper is to provide a review of recent developments in electromagnetic radiation (EMR) sensing.

Design/methodology/approach

Following a short introduction, this paper discusses a selection of recent research and development activities concerning the sensing of gamma radiation, X‐rays and ultraviolet (UV) radiation.

Findings

This shows that novel sensors are being developed for all of these classes of EMR. Improved gamma sensors are attracting strong interest in the USA, reflecting concerns regarding nuclear security. Novel X‐ray and UV sensors are often being developed in response to new and emerging uses of these types of radiation.

Originality/value

This paper provides a technical review of recent research into sensors for detecting gamma radiation, X‐rays and UV radiation.
