NitroSpecHand Held HPGe Spectrometer

The NitroSPEC can be equipped with a wide range of HPGe detectors depending on the application. HPGe planar GPD detectors are available for analysis of Gamma and X-rays.HPGe coaxial GCD detectors are available with relative efficiencies up to 20%. Standard or with extended energy range (X series). In field mode the NitroSPEC is used as identifier simultaneously acquiring and saving data for performance of quantitative and qualitative analysis in laboratory conditions. Communication between working station and the NitroSPEC is possible via USB or wireless connection.

 

 

Overview

Overview 

The NitroSPEC the world's smallest liquid nitrogen cooled Spectrometer which is based on High Purity Germanium (HPGe) semiconductor detectors. The NitroSPEC is providing the complete range of functions and features which are offered by regular laboratory Spectrometer based on HPGe detectors but in a really miniature composition of all major components. During the development of the NitroSPEC, Baltic Scientific Instruments R&D specialists were aimed at HPGe detector, Dewar vessel for liquid nitrogen, MCA with the software package and visualization monitor integration in only one miniature mono unit to provide easy and comfortable use. Because during the measurement no cables are needed, the operator is unrestricted in his mobility. Power supply is no longer an issue as everything is integrated.
