This honors project was designed for familiarization with modern instrumentation and experimentation methods for radioisotope detection and energy calculations. The two main instruments I studied were the Geiger-Mueller Counter and a single channel pulse height analyzer. This report will include a brief history of radiation and a description of the more important types. Next is a description of the two instruments mentioned and some simple experiments I conducted using them.
