If I were to design a radiation detector to detect electron radiations , but in the process proton ,alpha and beta radiations are also being detected , then how can I implement a filtering technique to filter the rest out?

Mass based filtering can be used i suppose?

There is no difference between "electron" radiations and beta radiations (beta particles are just electrons radiated as a result of nuclear processes). I suppose you could figure out a way to quantify the LET for discrimination with the others.
