Gamma spectrometry

Low-background chamber Low-background chamber
  • The Institute has a range of high-resolution gamma-spectrometers, based on planar and coaxial HPGe crystals
  • In addition, several Cd(Zn)Te detectors operating at room temperatures are available and in routine use for medium-resolution gamma spectrometry
  • NaI-based scintillator detectors are also available
  • Low-background iron chambers are used for measuring small activities (see the pictures)
  • The gamma spectroscopic facilities are operated at the Department of Radiation Safety and at the Department of Nuclear Research
