This chapter is devoted to various detection methods that can be used for ultracold atoms, with emphasis on those which cannot be realised in condensed matter systems. It starts by discussing time of flight methods that allow measurement of first order correlations, and then explains time of flight methods and noise correlations, which allow for the determining of higher order correlations. Bragg Spectroscopy and optical Bragg diffraction are then presented. Finally, the chapter discusses the methods exclusive for ultracold atoms: single atom detectors and quantum polarization spectroscopy.

Keywords:   time of flight, correlation functions, quantum noise spectroscopy, Bragg spectroscopy, optical Bragg diffraction, Single atom detection, quantum polarization spectroscopy
