The counting of scintillations, especially as a procedure to analyse a substance when it has been dissolved in a liquid containing a scintillant.
A detector for charged particles and gamma rays in which scintillations produced in a phosphor are detected and amplified by a photomultiplier, giving an electrical output signal.
