Gamma Spectroscopy

Gamma spectroscopy is the science (or art) of identification and/or quantification of radionuclides by analysis of the gamma-ray energy spectrum produced in a gamma-ray spectrometer. It is a widely used technique, well illustrated by the following list of examples:

  • ICS Integrated Cryocooling System for ORTEC Radiation DetectorsEnvironmental Radioactivity Monitoring
  • Health Physics Personnel Monitoring
  • Reactor Corrosion Monitoring
  • Nuclear Materials Safeguards and Homeland Security
  • Forensics and Nuclear Forensics
  • Materials Testing
  • Geology and Minerology
  • Nuclear Medicine and Radiophamaceuticals
  • Industrial Process Monitoring

A Complete Gamma Spectroscopy System Consists of:

  • Detector
  • Cooling System
  • Electronics
  • Analysis Software
