The successful development of lithium-drifted Ge detectors in the 's marked the beginning of the significant use of semiconductor crystals for direct detection and spectroscopy of gamma rays. In the 's, high-purity Ge became available, which enabled the production of complex detectors and multi-detector systems. May 01,  · This work deals with the development of a new gamma detector based on Silicon Drift Detectors (SDDs) to readout large LaBr 3:Ce scintillators for gamma-ray spectroscopy and imaging applications. The research is supported by the European Space Agency through the Technology Research Programme (TRP) and by Istituto Nazionale di Fisica Nucleare (INFN) within the Gamma Cited by: 8. Development of detector technology for X-ray, gamma-ray and neutron detection - poster Data (PDF Available) · February with 34 Reads How we measure 'reads'. Oct 22,  · Applied Gamma-Ray Spectrometry covers real life application of the gamma-ray and the devices used in their experimental studies. This book is organized into 9 chapters, and starts with discussions of the various decay processes, the possible interaction mechanisms of gamma radiation with matter, and the intrinsic and extrinsic variables, which affect the observed gamma-ray and X-ray Edition: 2.

In this paper, we report on a new cerium doped, high atomic number scintillator - LuI3:Ce for gamma ray spectroscopy. Crystals of this material have been grown using Bridgman process. Gamma detector sensitivity to beta radiation. The interaction of beta particles in the gamma detector is not probable and easily avoided in proportional counters by inserting absorbent material between the sample and the gamma detector. When liquid scintillation counters are used. This chapter mostly describes recent advances in the chemical modification of plastic scintillators for Pseudo-gamma spectrometry. The second part introduces dedicated algorithms for the processing of poorly resolved gamma-ray spectra, allowing therefore gamma identification with plastic scintillators [ Cited by: 2.

scintillator plus photomultiplier, the solid state scintillator converts the gamma ray photon into a burst of visible photons, the number of which is proportional to the gamma energy. For the high purity germanium detector, the gamma rays directly generate electron-hole . Same applies for our scintillation detector: An energetic particle is traveling through the detector (e.g. electron from gamma ray interaction). Per travelling length dx this particle may produce a scintillation photon, which may make it to the photo-cathode, which may be converted into a photo-electron in the PMT and contribute to the signal. Technology, material, geometry, and performance of HPGe gamma-ray detectors Focusing on photon energy resolution criterion, HPGe still provides one of the best results. With a good quality material, the energy resolution is very close to the Fano limit [ 21, 22 ].Cited by: 1.
