  • Compton Suppression

    Compton Suppression — Spectroscopy

    In gamma ray spectrometry performed with High-purity Germanium detectors (HPGe), the detection of low intensity gamma ray lines is complicated by the presence of Compton scattered gamma rays of higher energy. At energies above a few hundred keV, the main interaction in the relatively low Z High-purity Germanium (HPGe) crystal is via Compton interaction. The Compton scattered gamma rays give... Read more

  • CeBr3 Cerium Bromide

    CeBr3 - Cerium Bromide — Cerium Bromide Detectors

    CeBr3 scintillation crystals offer an alternative to NaI(Tl) crystals for high resolution gamma spectrometry. Above an energy of 200 keV, the resolution is superior to NaI(Tl). CeBr3 scintillation detectors do not suffer from the intrinsic La-138 background typical for Lahalide scintillators.

    • High resolution low background CeBr3 scintillators
    • Maximum emission: 380 nm
    • Decay Time (typical): 18-20 ns
  • 4x4x16 Scintillation Detectors

    4"x4"x16" Scintillation Detectors — Scintillation Detector with Spectroscopic Amplifier and Single Channel Analyzer (SCA)

    The detector contains a complete set of electronics. The detector has an internal High Voltage supply based on the Cockroft Walton principle. This ensures stable gain also at high count rates and low power consumption.

    The signals from the photomultiplier tube are processed with a hybrid low power spectroscopic amplifier system; the output pulses can be directly fed into the MCA. The... Read more
