Abstract
The interest in nuclear physics and cosmic rays that has developed

in America has caused wide use of the Geiger counter as a detector of charged

particles and ionizing radiations. Work has been done to increase the reliability

of the counter which has involved further work on the mode of its

operation. Recent work which has developed improved manufacturing methods

has made possible the use of Geiger counters in quantitative work.

It is the purpose of this paper to review the field of the Geiger

counter with respect to their construction and use.
