      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
