quantum detector

quantum detector

[′kwän·təm di‚tek·tər]
(physics)
A detector of electromagnetic radiation which converts a quantum of the radiation into a proportionate signal by some process which is insensitive to quanta of less than a certain energy; examples include photographic emulsions, photoelectric cells, and Geiger counters.
