This contribution reviews detectors used for low-intensity radioactive-beam (RB) diagnostics. Emphasis is on diagnostic devices that are based on the detection of secondary products (ions, electrons) resulting from the interaction of the ion beam with a thin detection medium. Devices based on this principle can be tailored to work with low-energy (<10 MeV/A) ion beams available at current and planned ISOL type RB facilities.
